Treme' Walking Tour

What to expect
  • Explore Treme’, a historic New Orleans neighborhood filled with vibrant culture and music
  • Visit Congo Square and Storyville to learn about NOLA’s jazz history
  • Discover the role of the Creoles in the Civil Rights Movement
  • Enjoy an exciting area of history that is still full of life today
This tour is gonna be ex-Treme’! Okay, it’s a walking tour, so that might be an exaggeration. But it will be fun and interesting! (Also, just so you know, it’s pronounced Tre-May.)

Treme’, the oldest African-American neighborhood in the United States, sits adjacent to the French Quarter and is steeped in vibrant music and culture. Come explore this iconic gem and revel in New Orleans jazz history with its roots in Congo square and Storyville, the birthplace of jazz greats as Alphonse Picou and Trombone Shorty.

Treme’ was originally settled by Free People of Color, often referred to as Creoles, whose unique experience helped shape the Civil Rights Movement. It is the hallmark of African-American history not to be missed. Today, Treme’ is home to artists, musicians, and craftsmen and is a living, breathing, joyful piece of New Orleans history.

So, we were wrong. It won’t be ex-Treme’, but it will be Treme’zing!
