Today (August 7), the Oak Street Merchants, Residents and Property Owners announced the date for this year’s Oak Street Po-Boy Festival. On Sunday, November 11, the Uptown corridor will once again close down traffic access and serve up food, music and more for thousands of fest-goers.
Four stages of music and more than 35 food vendors will be on site for this year’s annual Carrollton event, which this year will be produced by Jared Zeller, founder and producer of the annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo.
In a press release, President of the Oak Street Merchants, Residents and Property Owners Min Yang said “We’re so excited to bring Jared on this year. His work with the Bayou Boogaloo has been consistently impressive, and we’re looking forward to his experience and insights enhancing the Po-Boy Fest.”
Returning to this year’s fest are the $5 wristbands required for the purchase of po-boys, which organizers say are implemented to “offset the cost of security and infrastructure.” They will be available for sale onsite.
Details about the music lineup and vendors are pending; in fact, the festival is accepting applications from food vendors and any bands interested in performing. Applications and more information can be found at https://www.poboyfest.com.
