Details

From its beginnings as a small neighborhood celebration more than 30 years ago, French Quarter Festival has grown into “The World’s Largest Block Party.” Visitors can join locals to celebrate the best of Louisiana music, food, and culture at New Orleans’ largest free festival.

Featuring more than 800 musicians on 20 stages, 65 food and beverage vendors, works by New Orleans’ top artists, and kid-friendly attractions, French Quarter Festival spreads over the five or six blocks between Bourbon Street and the Mississippi Riverfront. There is no admission charge and fences do not enclose the festival site. Festivalgoers are free to come and go as they would at any block party.
