In this episode we dive into the New Orleans French Quarter Festival. The fest takes place in April, usually over the second full weekend. It spans four days (Thursday through Sunday), features local musicians exclusively and is completely free! And when I say local, I mean almost all acts are from New Orleans. A couple exceptions for Cajun and Zydeco artists who mostly come from Southwestern Louisiana.
Festival Dates :

We cover all the essentials plus you’ll get the insider tips and lagniappe you’ve come to appreciate from Beyond Bourbon Street. I also include things to do, see and eat beyond the fest, but still in the French Quarter. In fact, this is one of the things that makes the French Quarter fest so much fun and so unique - it takes place among the restaurants, bars and businesses - in the community of the French Quarter. Join us for this unique insider’s perspective through the music, food, and history of the festival and the French Quarter!
