4th Annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival
It is with great pleasure and heartfelt gratitude that we announce the 4th Annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival May 22-23, once again being held on the banks of historic and beautiful Bayou St. John.

Over the last three years our event has experienced tremendous growth. 2008 was a milestone year for what has quickly become one of South Louisiana's signature cultural celebrations. Last year as New Orleans celebrated our annual Festival over 20,000 locals and visitors reveled in music from three stages, dined on delicious food, sampled our unique local culture and enjoyed an art market showcasing the talents and creativity of our visual artists. Based on such great past success, we are projecting continued long term growth as we produce this year's last major music and art event before the long dog days of summer set in.

This year is a real turning point in our event's history as we strive to create harmony between our festival and the environment. The 2009 Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo becomes Louisiana's first green music and arts festival with Solar powered stages, Bio-Diesel generators, locally grown and organic foods, a comprehensive recycling program and sustainable living and coastal restoration education.

As always the Festival is a family-friendly event with a kids stage, along with games and activities for children. Attendees can partake in delicious food, cold beer and libations, listen to great local music, and enjoy the very best art that New Orleans has to offer.

The MotherShip Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to encouraging social change by bringing forth a higher quality of life for all Louisiana and New Orleans residents through the promotion of arts, culture, and recreation. We are seeking partners who will unite with us and help us continue this tradition. We invite you to become an integral part of this unique celebration and to partner with us and help make the 4th Annual Bayou Boogaloo a bigger than ever success!

With the help of our traditional and new partners, we will reach out to local and new audiences and increase the attendance from surrounding Parishes and States. By joining with us, you and your company will make a lasting positive impression on the many thousands of attendees.
