Don't miss the fun when one of the biggest parties of the year sets up stage right in the heart of New Orleans. Welcome to 2015 French Quarter Festival that offers a fantastic lineup of the city's favorite live jazz, blues and zydeco bands. Even better? Admission is always free to this incredibly popular event that is now in its 32nd year.
The highlight of this festival is the music of the Big Easy. Over a four-day stretch from April 9 to 12, you can catch dozens of bands playing until the sun goes down. New Orleans has its very own musical style, and the best bands in town will be strutting their stuff. From big brass bands and jazz quintets to Cajun country singers and local legends like Allen Toussaint, this festival is all about the sweet sounds of New Orleans. Over 100 groups will delight thousands of people that come out every year for this local tradition.
If all that music makes you hungry, the festival also offers local food vendors around every stage. Dig into local delicacies like crawfish jambalaya, shrimp po' boys, and tasty beans and rice. The drink selection is just as good as the food, and you will find Abita beer along with original daiquiris and soft drinks. Make your plans now to catch the biggest free festival in the US.
