The Historic BK House & Gardens honors of St. Joseph's Day with an altar every year. Join us in marking this sacred Sicilian tradition, which has been celebrated in the French Quarter since Sicilian immigrants began arriving to the city in the late 19th century.
The altar will open on Friday, March 17 through Sunday, March 19 through from 10 AM – 3 PM. The public will be invited to visit and learn more about this important tradition. On display will also be examples of suits made for the Black Masking Tradition of New Orleans, as St. Joseph's Day also corresponds with this long-standing celebration of Black and Indigenous culture.
