Broadmoor Fest

Mar 17, 2006 by

The Broadmoor community wants to welcome back all of its friends and neighbors. And they’re doing it in a big way with the first annual “Broadmoor Fest” this Saturday, March 18, from 11 a.m. till 7 p.m.

The festival takes place on South Galvez Street between Cadiz and Napoleon, and will feature music, food, drink, and, most importantly, a chance for the people of Broadmoor to reunite and celebrate their historic neighborhood. Juan Urrea, a Broadmoor resident and organizer of the festival, hopes to make this an annual event, and says it couldn’t come at a better time.

“We need to welcome back our neighbors, and demonstrate to the city our viability,” Urrea says. “We’re coming back, and we’re happy about it.

The Broadmoor Improvement Association (BIA) is sponsoring the event along with the First Presbyterian Church and the Church of the Annunciation, who will provide the food for the daylong festival. Music will fill the air with Broadmoor resident, Sunpie Barnes and his band the Louisiana Sunspots, headlining the musical acts. Other acts include: ML Crisis, singer/songwriter, Mark Fernandez, Washboard Chaz, and brass band, the Levee-tators.

The rain date for the festival is March 25. For more information, call Juan Urrea at 342-2680.
