Just when we thought the New Orleans festival scene couldn’t get any more exciting, a new festival is unveiled. This summer, the New Orleans Festival of Festivals, or “Festival Fest” takes hold of the Crescent City with an unprecedented collection of mini festivals within one. Experience Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Summer SatchmoFest, and more all in one spectacular weekend!
Food, music, and art from each fest will all be present at this new fest of fests, happening on a barge on Lake Pontchartrain. Get ready for Crawfish Monica from Jazz Fest while jamming to the local sounds of French Quarter Fest. Craving a boat ride from Bayou Boogaloo? You can do that, too.
Mark Romig, President, and CEO of New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation could not contain his excitement for the new fest.
“This festival was truly what our city’s festival roster needed. With a dynamic array of festivals within one festival, this year’s festival season will be unlike any other that has come before. Welcome, Festival Fest!”
