‘International Fest’ to feature music, food from around the world, benefit American Cancer Society, October 18

Written by  Spears Consulting Group
International Fest, a FREE all-ages music and food festival, returns for a second year to the scenic Port of New Orleans on Saturday, October 18 from 11:00am to 9:00pm. The festival will feature 10 hours of live entertainment from local and international acts, food trucks providing international cuisine, and an eclectic Arts and Crafts marketplace.
 
This year’s producers, Spears Consulting Group and the New Orleans South African Connection (NOSACONN), are bringing on a roster of talent to create a truly global experience right here in New Orleans. This year’s lineup features an all-star group of entertainers that represent cultures all around the world. Featured entertainers include South African musicians Musa Manzini and Mbuso Khoza, Haitian songstress Leyla McCall, and the always popular Brazillian dance troupe Casa Samba.
Local favorites Los Hombres Calientes, Rebirth Brass Band, Los Po Boy Citos and Debauche will also be taking the stage as well as Russell Batiste of The Funky Meters, Jason Neville and the Wild Tchoupitoulas and a special guest appearance by Leo Nocentelli, founding member of The Meters.
 
From Jamaican to Vietnamese, Ethiopian to Italian, the International Food Court will feature an eclectic mix of International Cuisine from some of New Orleans’ most renowned Food Trucks and restaurants. The Food Court will also feature The Munch Factory, recently crowned “Favorite Millennial Restaurant Destination” at the 2014 Millennial Awards in July. International Fest also has the distinction of closing out “Celebrate Africa Week,” which in 2014 will be honoring the 20th Anniversary of the Freedom of South Africa. The fest will feature a digital media area that will live stream coinciding events in South Africa marking this historic milestone as well as a Brass Band Festival in France.
 
Proceeds from International Fest will benefit the New Orleans chapter of the American Cancer Society as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
