The Rock & Rouge Women's Music & Food Festivalhttp://therockandrouge.com
The Rock & Rouge Women's Music & Food Festival will be held at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old US Mint on Saturday, June 16th from 10 am until 10 pm. We'll be showcasing some amazing female talent, focusing on women empowerment all around. Our "Women Who Rock" Stage will feature female-fronted bands, headlined by Irma Thomas, Soul Queen of New Orleans. Around the grounds, we will be serving delicious cuisine provided by local female chefs and food vendors. Under the big oak tree, we'll also create an elegant champagne experience with bubbly and caviar for those of age to drink. For the younger generations, we have partnered with Electric Girls and Microsoft to create the Tomboy STEAM Tent for educational fun and enrichment. This tent will feature creative activities geared towards kids age 8 to 14. Inside the Mint's third floor theatre, we will host several Women's Empowerment Panels, including: STEAM panel, Women in Politics panel, College panel, Music panel, Career panel, and Mardi Gras Indian & Krewe Queen panel.
