Q is for New Orleans French Quarter Fest -- #atozchallenge

We all just missed this one. The 2016 French Quarter Fest took place April 7-10. Basically, it is a music festival with an extensive line-up scattered on twenty-three stages across the French Quarter.

And of course, it wouldn't be a festival in New Orleans without amazing food! Vendors abound.

Special events during the recent festival included an opera, free dance lessons, a film festival, a juried art show on Pirate's Alley, and numerous lectures on various music genres.

I have not been to this festival, but I have been to the French Quarter on occasion. You can read about two of those adventures here and here.

Mark you calendars for next year's French Quarter Fest, April 6-9.

What is your favorite thing about the French Quarter?

This sounds like a fun time in New Orleans! I have always been told to avoid Mardi Gras and I think I will, but this might be worth checking out.

Hi Stephanie. I would never go to NOLA during Mardi Gras either! Can't take the crowds. But yes, I agree, this could be fun.
