Central City Festival 2013 (272) 2013 Festival

For the past seven years, the Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard Merchants & Business Association (OCHBMBA) has hosted an annual festival that brings together businesses and cultural institutions, as part of the Louisiana Main Street “Main-to-Main” celebration of our state’s small town main streets and urban commercial corridors each November. OCHBMBA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that seeks to revitalize the Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard business district. Since its founding in the late 1990’s, OCHBMBA has increased its ability to improve the neighborhood by achieving state designations as a Main Street Program and a Cultural Products District.

OCHBMBA has partnered with merchants, sponsors, artists, performers, non-profits and other community members to bring a multicultural flavor to the festival, which takes place in the 1600-1700 blocks of Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. which are blocked to traffic for the day. The Festival features live music, dance performances and competition on a large stage; children’s activities; a health fair; an art show; cooking demonstrations; and a diverse array of foods, art and other merchandise available for purchase.

We invite you to be part of the buzz on the Boulevard and support the rebirth of a rich arts and culture corridor by becoming a sponsor or vendor of Central City Festival 2014!
