15 Moments That Show the Magic of Bayou Boogaloo 2019

Well, that’s it folks! Bayou Boogaloo Music Festival just wrapped up three days of fun along Bayou St. John in Mid-City. This was the 14th consecutive Bayou Boogaloo, and besides some morning rain on Sunday, this is possibly one of the best years yet.

Anders Osborne, Tap Benoit, Amanda Shaw, Cowboy Mouth, The Suffers, and Raw Oyster Cult made up some of the musical talents from this year. While the entertainment is top notch, there is something unique about this festival. It’s a mixture of the food, music, people, and overall freeness of the festival that makes it stand out amongst other NOLA festivals.

Although the festival charged $10 a day, it still feels “free” in terms of expression and a desire to enjoy the outdoors. You see it day after day as people pile onto homemade rafts and float along the bayou, enjoying the sounds and smells that make New Orleans festival culture unlike any other city in the world.

While we can talk on it all day long, it’s best to show you what we mean.

Dive into 15 of our top moments from the wonderful  Bayou Boogaloo!
