French Quarter Festival

French Quarter Festival 2011 - 11:15am

New Orleans Louisiana 70112
US
Price: Free

French Quarter Festival has expanded this year to 4 days, and will feature many local Louisiana performers, and is free to the public with stages throughout the French Quarter streets and along the RiverFront. It is a great festival for all ages, including families with children. Visit the website listed. Onward this year will feature some new members for the first time, and continue in the traditional style that has made it a popular band since the 1870's. There will be a shuttle service to the area this year.


It was a beautiful day in Woldenberg Park along the Mississippi river and Onward played for a large and receptive crowd as it rapidly grew, as jazz fans entered the vast area with 4 successive stages presenting various Louisiana musical groups. Several fans second-lined with colorful umbrellas to the tunes, which, to mention a few were Bourbon Street Parade, Down by the Riverside, Closer Walk with Thee-Didn't He Ramble, and Joe Avery's Blues(Second Line).

We hope to return again next year, and many more years to come.
