Inaugural Plessy Fest in the French Quarter
New Orleans, La. (September 18, 2017) –This Saturday, September 23, 2017, Homer A. Plessy Community School (Plessy School) will open its doors to the public and school community for the inaugural Plessy Fest. The event will be a celebration of live, local music, fantastic food trucks, school fair extraordinaire, and a silent auction to raise funds to directly support the school’s project based, arts-integrated approach to learning.
“We’ve been amazed by the communities embrace since moving into our new campus. Every time I meet a resident or business owner, they tell me how happy they are to have a school in the French Quarter,” said acting head of school, Meghan Raychaudhuri. “Plessy Fest is our way of sharing the joy and creativity our students experience every day with our new neighbors!”
The school is grateful to its Plessy Fest Title Sponsors: Creole Cookery, French Quarter Realty, Vieux Carré Patio Planters, and Frank Relle Gallery. The Supporting Sponsors are Mr. Jamie Coleman, Adler’s, Lowe, Stein, Hoffman, Allweiss & Hauver, Canal Barge, and 4th Sector Solutions.
