Bayou St. John connects many communities in New Orleans and traces a path through the city’s history. Friends of Bayou St. John connects people to this unique natural and cultural resource.
The Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo music festival is the organization’s signature program. Originally created in 2006 to help revitalize a neighborhood and support musicians, artists and community businesses in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, it has grown into a celebration and demonstration of how Bayou St. John can bring New Orleans together.
Friends of Bayou St. John builds on this potential in order to uplift this resource for all of our community by promoting stewardship, cultural appreciation, responsible recreation and initiatives that support a clean, healthy Bayou St. John that is accessible to all.
