Tremé Fall Festival

Tremé Fall Fest is the most culturally authentic festival in New Orleans. It is in the heart of the Tremé neighborhood. It is dedicated to public good. The festival and the accompanying patron party has donated over $80,000 to Tremé's cultural assets like St. Augustine Catholic Church, the oldest African-American Catholic parish in the United States.

The purpose of the festival is to highlight the rich culture and history of the Tremé community, raise funds to help with the extensive repairs of St. Augustine Catholic Church and help the struggling music and cultural groups within the community to stay alive and functioning. 

St. Augustine Catholic Church has a rich and important history in America as is considered the centerpiece for the oldest African-American Catholic Church in the country. It was dedicated on October 9, 1842. Free people of color bought more pews for their families than any other contributors, and then bought all the pews of both side aisles. The side-aisle pews were given to slaves, who were welcomed to worship there, a first in the history of slavery in America. The mixture of pews resulted in the most integrated congregation in the United States. Free people of color, white people, ethnic people, and slaves regularly attended the church together.
