We are thrilled to team up with Oak Street Po-Boy Festival this year to host the first official Where Y’Art Market! The market will feature over 25 New Orleans artists, offering appropriately priced, one-of-a-kind local gifts, ranging from paintings and photographs to artful accents and jewelry. “Oak Street is a center for creativity in New Orleans, and we are excited to add an art ingredient to the Po-Boy Fest recipe. We strive to bring the best local art to you online and this opportunity allows us to bring the artists and works of Where Y’Art to you, in person.” – Where Y’Art co-founder, Collin Ferguson.
Join us on Oak Street for the 2015 Po-Boy Festival, Sunday November 22. Alongside the Where Y’Art Market, there will be two stages of live local music and more than 40 Po-Boy vendors from some of the best restaurants in the City. Entrance to the festival is free!
