Threats of heavy rain prompted the organizers of the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival (www.poboyfest.com) to postpone the event to Nov. 12. It will feature the same music lineup and food vendors.
Vendors including Boucherie, Bratz Y'all!, Crabby Jack's, Dunbar's Creole Cuisine, Red Fish Grill, Seither's Seafood and Walker's Southern Style BBQ will serve creative po-boys.
There are four music stages, and performers include King James and the Special Men, Brass-A-Holics, Robin Barnes, Soul Brass Band and Michot's Melody Makers.
The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Oak Street between South Carrollton and Leake avenues and on Leonidas Street from Oak to Willow Street. Patrons who wish to buy food from the vendors must purchase a $5 wristband. Wristband sales support vendors and musicians and also benefit the Son of a Saint youth mentorship program. Wristbands are not required to purchase alcoholic beverages.
