Haiti at Jazz Fest 

The Haiti Pavilion: Vodou Ceremonial Art, Drumming & Live Performances

The Haitian Pavilion is between the Congo Square Stage and Congo Food area. Through both weekends, it will be the site of drumming and Vodou ceremonies, craft demonstrations and art and cultural exhibits. There is a replica of a Vodou temple where Mama Lola, Mambo Florence Jean Joseph and Mambo Marie-Lourdes Simeon will lead ceremonies.

Haiti & New Orleans: Cultural Crossroads — A Series of Panel Discussions

Nine scholarly panels will present discussions about the cultural connections between Haiti and Louisiana, including Haitian immigration to New Orleans and a comparison of Vodou practices. Gage Averill from the University of British Columbia and LSU's Joyce Marie Jackson will moderate the panels. All panel discussions take place between 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 29, through Sunday, May 1, in a tent in the Folklife Village.

Haiti Exhibits: Grandstand

There are three Haitian art and documentary exhibits in the Grandstand. "Congo Square New Orleans: African Roots in America" highlights links between Haitian immigration and gatherings at Congo Square during the early 1800s. "Haiti: the Soul, the Spirit, the Art" displays Haitian artwork in a variety of styles and mediums. "Dear Haiti, From New Orleans with Love" showcases photographs related to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
