French Quarter Festival

April 16 - 19, 2020

Over 20 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.

Look for more than 2,000 artists – that’s 250 acts of New Orleans' favorite musical performers to entertain—with a whole raft of other New Orleans legends and all-stars. All for free as you wander and meander and sit and nosh and sip.

Bring your appetite to enjoy the festival's culinary lineup with booths in Woldenberg Riverfront Park, Jackson Square, Jax Brewery Parking Lot, and the Jazz Museum at the Mint -- a tantalizing spread of beverages and specialty items from some of the best known restaurants in the Crescent City. Sample Pat O'Brien's Hurricanes, Barbecue Oysters from Red Fish Grill, Prime Rib Po-boy from the Rib Room, Baked Alaska from Antoine’s, Shrimp Remoulade from Galatoire’s and Oysters Rockefeller from Desire Oyster Bar. You can’t try all the restaurants individually during one trip to New Orleans, but you can try a lot of them during this weekend. There’s jambalaya, blackened catfish po-boys, crawfish étouffée, Cajun meat pies, deep fried cupcakes, white chocolate bread pudding and more. More than 60 food and beverage booths are scattered throughout the historic French Quarter and the riverfront. All dishes are priced to sample and savor.

French Quarter Festival also has special activities for kids at the Chevron STEM Zone, free dance lessons, and artist interviews.
