For the tenth consecutive year, the Boulevard comes alive as Ashé Cultural Arts Center and GoodWork Network join with musicians, actors, merchants, and the community to create an amazingly entertaining holiday festival and marketplace in Central City New Orleans. The festival brings together a mix of jazz, hip-hop, r&b, gospel, folk, reggae, along with theater and dance. Holiday on the Boulevard’s events will occur on Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6, 2009 at Ashé which is located at 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., and at GoodWork Network, 1824 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.

One of the highlights of the festival is when Ashé’s holiday icons, Mama YeYe & Baba Kwanzaa, meet Santa & Mrs. Claus. Led by a brass band, the couples second line from GoodWork Network to Ashé where they are met by festival participants who join in the second line.

Voices Not Forgotten, another feature not to be missed, spotlights the senior citizens (ages 62 to 94) from the Central City Senior Center. These ladies and gentlemen infuse oral histories, backed by videography, into their song-and-dance routines and are known for not only packing the house, but “bringing it down” with a foot-stomping audience that always begs for more. They offer gospel, R&B, and humorous testimonies.

The festival also includes a marketplace which gives festival-goers the opportunity to purchase gifts from local merchants and artisans, and enjoy food prepared by local vendors.

Good Work Network’s Youth Marketplace will feature youth, ages 7-21, who have participated in entrepreneurship training provided by GoodWork Network. The training culminates with “real-world” selling on December 5, at Holiday on the Blvd. Along with other young people, they will sell affordable food items and hand-made holiday gifts. Participating youth groups include LA Green Corps, Alpha Coffee House, Sojourner Truth Community Center, and Café Reconcile.
