Essence Festival Weekend Trip 2014

Spaces are available for the trip! If you are interested, please pay your deposit!  . 

Join Atlanta Naturals for the largest annual African American event and gathering of musical talent in the world.  The Essence Festivals offers all types of events, seminars, showcases and the most anticipated concerts every night. The headliner this year is Prince in celebration for the 20 years anniversary. Even if you decide not to attend the performances, there are so many other activities and events throughout the city.

This is the first year that the group is attending and we were able to find a great hotel 10 minutes from the main attractions at an affordable price.  In addition, we will have a shuttle bus that will take us to and from the hotel to the Convention Center, special events and to the Superdome every night for the musical performances. We have also organized a pool party at the hotel for our group and friends.  The full itinerary will be available in June.

The weekend package includes:

• 3 Nights Hotel

• Motor coach Transportation

• Pool Party

• Shuttle Bus Service to and from the Hotel

• T-Shirt and Tote Bag full of gifts and product samples

• On the Bus Hair Talk and Demos with Atlanta Bloggers and Stylists

• Games, entertainment and giveaways on the bus


The cost per person for the weekend package:

Double Occupancy $550

Single Occupancy $850

Triple Occupancy $450 

Quad Occupancy $385 


Hotel: We have contracted with a very nice, 4-star rated hotel about 10 minutes from the Superdome. We will be staying at the Best Western Plus.


Roommate(s): If you do not have roommate(s), then you will be able to meet others at a meet and greet in June.  We also have a process to match those with roommates with similar sleeping styles and interests. More information will be provided to you in June.


TICKETS TO THE CONCERTS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE. You can purchase your tickets at ticketmaster.  You do not need to attend the concerts, there are many events (mostly free) throughout the city during the weekend).
