Holiday On The Boulevard


A Central City Holiday Tradition


Music and merriment are the order of the day when Ashé Cultural Arts Center lights up the boulevard with musicians, merchants, authors, spoken word artists, and the community, creating an astonishing holiday family festival and marketplace. The festival brings together a hefty mix of jazz, hip-hop, and R&B, sprinkled with spoken word and incredible young dancers.  Unique one-of-a-kind gifts are available from merchants.  Food vendors are also onsite.

At the annual holiday luncheon and open house, the executive director gives a report to the community. 

The holiday period also includes a field-trip production of The Origin of Life on Earth:  An African Creation Myth.

Wanted:  vendors, volunteers and sponsors.  Interested?  Call (504) 569-9070.
