Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival

New Orleans, LA 70119

The Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo is produced by MotherShip Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Boogaloo's presenting sponsor is also a nonprofit organization, Positive Vibrations Foundation. This is not one of those corporate events where some fat cat is sitting back and getting rich. MotherShip Foundation struggles to keep this festival free every year, but so far, we've been able to make this possible thanks to our sponsors and community support. We prioritize producing a free festival so that all community members have the opportunity to celebrate the arts, culture, and recreation. People who bring their own beverages into the festival are not pulling one over on "the man," they're cheating a charity out of its main revenue stream while enjoying all of the programming and infrastructure that working-class folks have made possible.
