The French Quarter Festival brings a phenomenal amount of great music and food to the New Orleans French Quarter, April 7 – 10, 2011. It’s hard to imagine this part of town could get even more interesting and fun than it already is, but it can and it does.
The French Quarter Festival is the largest free music festival in the southern United States. It includes 17 stages and more than 100 performers. It showcases all genres of music, from big brass bands to classical to New Orleans Funk.
French Quarter Festival Music Lineup includes:
- Rockin’ Dopsie
- Little Freddie King
- NOLA Jitterbugs
An enormous variety of food is available at three venues: Jackson Square, Woldenberg Riverfront Park, and the Old U.S. Mint. What can you eat? Better to ask what can’t you.
French Quarter Festival Food includes:
- Po Boys – any kind you want
- Creole Jambalaya
- Shrimp and Alligator Sausage Cheesecake
- Turtle Soup au Sherry
- Black Jambalaya
The choice can be overwhelming. Pace yourself. Break up your listening with eating and your eating with listening. Visit all the stages and walk by all the food vendors. The French Quarter Festival is a feast for the senses, and should be thoroughly tasted, heard and seen.
A number of New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts are within walking distance of the festival venues. Book your room today.
