Made possible by thousands of dedicated volunteers and sponsors like JAMNOLA, the French Quarter Festival was started back in 1984 as a way to bring folks back to the revitalized neighborhood and it quickly became the largest showcase of Louisiana music in the world. Over 20 stages are erected throughout the area, each celebrating different genres of locally inspired music. From contemporary jazz, R&B, New Orleans funk and brass bands to folk, gospel and cabaret, there’s something for every style of listener to groove to. A few of the heavy hitting performers teed up for this year include Rebirth Brass Band, Papa Mali, and Lost Bayou Ramblers
With an unparalleled culinary lineup to pair with the tunes, it’s no surprise the event has been voted ‘favorite food festival’ by locals and visitors alike. From sweet treats including Crêpes à la Cart to savory creations like Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse and everything in between, no tastebuds will be left disappointed.
Crash at the Old No. 77 Hotel after experiencing this one-of-a-kind festival, trust us – you'll sleep like a baby after days of great music, incredible food and the lively spirit of New Orleans.
