The 33rd annual French Quarter Fest is here! What a great event for visitors and natives of New Orleans! This local festival was established in 1983 and had its first year in action in 1984. Since then, the French Quarter Fest has grown into the biggest FREE music festival in the U.S.!! Over the next 4 days, there will be over 1700 world-class local musicians performing throughout the Vieux Carre. Whether you want to dance outside in the gorgeous weather or sip a cocktail in an air conditioned bar, you can do so, while listening to a wide range of Louisiana music, including jazz, zydeco, and blues. Check out the full lineup of scheduled artists and venues here. Laissez les bon temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)
