French Quarter Festival

fq

This festival has charmed New Orleanians since it first began in 1984, designed to remind locals how fabulous and fun the French Quarter can be. Stages are set up at every corner, food from the city’s finest restaurants fill booths in Jackson Square and beyond. It was a secret for a while, rewarding tourists who happened to be in town anyway in April. Now, this grand fete has evolved into something everyone adores, visitors and locals alike. This city's finest music and cuisine are on hand to celebrate life and love in the French Quarter.

Nearly two dozen stages take over the French Quarter throughout the four-day weekend, starting early in the day and going on through the night. Festival-goers will hear jazz, Latin, r&b, zydeco, New Orleans funk, swing and rock throughout the Quarter.
