French Quarter Festival 2017

The World’s Largest Free Music Experience is right around the corner.  April 6-9 marks the 37th year of the French Quarter Festival. The Festival is a four-day music event that takes place in numerous locations throughout the French Quarter.  The weather in New Orleans is usually perfect, not too hot or humid!

You can stroll throughout the French Quarter and listen to one of over 1700 musician who play on 23 stages in the streets.  That equates to about 400 hours of music.  Wear a hat,  comfortable shoes, bring a portable chair,  buy a cocktail and enjoy all the music.  There will be lots of New Orleans vendors on hand incase you wish to sample some of our famous food.  In order to keep the festival Free, outside food and beverages are prohibited.

Parking can be challenging, so take the street car or run the RTA bus and make your life easier. Almost all of the French Quarter is handicapped accessible.  The Festival gives out an event brochure which shows you a map with all the various stage locations and special events which take place the entire extended weekend.  There is also a map on their website that you can download and print.

The crowd at the French Quarter Festival ranges from families with children to people getting their groove on. For more information just click on the link at the top of this post.
