Glitter Box is all about girl and women power at their boutique. Glitter Box helped raise funds for the Rock & Rouge by dedicating one full day in a percentage of sales to the Rock & Rouge putting their money wear their boas and hats are sold and will be also a vendor at the festival. We are so excited to have this woman-owned business as our partner.
This year the Rock & Rouge is partnering up with the beloved institution founded over 20+ years to serve the musicians of New Orleans and funded by musicians, like, U2 guitarist Edge, and Bruce Springsteen.
We thank the City of New Orleans for their generous grant given to the Rock and Rouge Foundation in support of the community service it does through the Festival which received a Proclamation from the City of New Orleans for its community service with other organizations and its citizens of New Orleans.
Parks and Parkways is the newest partner of the Rock & Rouge Women’s Music & Food Festival & Beyond serving Lafayette Park that is the new location for the Rock & Rouge 2020.
The New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old U.S. Mint in the French Quarter is a proud partner of the Rock & Rouge Women’s Music & Food Festival & beyond. The Rock & Rouge could be in a number of great locations. However, the producers feel there is no other location more extraordinary to launch its inaugural festival other then at the Old U.S. Mint. Come and enjoy “Living History” inside a 3 levels air-conditioned indoor space offering a beautiful theatre for women empowerment panels. Outside, the grounds flank Frenchmen Street and Esplanade Avenue that will feature the “Women Who Rock” stage of female fronted rock bands, female food vendors, beauty bars and drink experiences at the Rock & Rouge bar. The producers are proud to present The Rock & Rouge Foundation and it’s “Tomboy Tent” that will hold STEAM workshops for girls ages 8-14 with Microsoft, ElectricGirls.org and more.
When you think of Public Radio do you think WHIV-LP? Here in New Orleans anything is possible. Thus was born a new radio station 102.3FM WHIV-LP. The radio station features more than 70 radio hosts and DJs, broadcasting over 12 hours of daily music and original content throughout New Orleans metropolitan area, streaming in all 50 states and 85 countries around the world. The majority of WHIV listeners and supporters are from New Orleans, and all of our shows, music, and content is “dedicated to human rights and social justice to end all wars”. The New Orleans Society for Infectious Disease Awareness (NOSIDA) was established in 2009 by Tulane School of Medicine professor Dr. MarkAlain Dery to raise awareness, through its music. While building the station, Dr. Dery was tasked with selecting call letters for the FM dial with the “W” being a fixed letter. So Dr. Dery wanted the call letters to reflect the ethos of the organization, and with only three letters to select from, he wanted them to represent ‘human rights and social justice’. Dr. Dery says, “Infectious diseases are diseases of the poor, and when we are talking about poverty, we are talking about human rights and social justice. I named the station WHIV because I wanted those letters H, I, and V to stand for all things, human rights and social justice to end all wars.” Big Pearl’s Rock & Rouge radio show was born July 2, 2017 Saturday night from 9p-11p featuring an all-women music format with sometimes women talks and issues, like, the guests organizers from the New Orleans Women’s March. On June 30, 2018, Dr. Dery and the team at 102.3 FM WHIV-LP will offer their generous support in broadcasting live from the Rock & Rouge Festival at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old U.S. Mint. We are so excited!
