Saturday, September 26, St. Augustine High School celebrated its 7th Annual Hamp Fest with a record breaking crowd and what has become one of New Orleans’ premier music festivals. As the memories of the Hamp Festival settle in, we send our thanks to all attendees, sponsors and performers.

We offer our congratulations and sincere thanks to Kenny Chenier ’81, Hamp Fest producer and chair of the annual fundraiser, for his dedication to St Augustine and Hamp Fest. A special note of thanks goes to the St. Aug Alumni Advisory Board, members of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, the Ladies for Purple Scholars Foundation and the more than 100 volunteers that worked to ensure the success of Hamp Fest.
