French Quarter Festival 2014

First produced in 1984, French Quarter Fest started as a way to bring residents of New Orleans back to the Quarter following the World’s Fair and the extensive sidewalk repairs in the French Quarter. The largest free music festival in the South, French Quarter Fest hosts 21 stages throughout the Quarter and celebrates local music, from contemporary jazz to New Orleans funk to zydeco to gospel. This year’s line up features Eric Lindell, George Porter and the Runnin’ Pardners, Brass-a-holics, the Smoking Time Jazz Club,the legendary Dr. John, and many, many more. In addition to a long line-up of talented local musicians, some of New Orleans’ great restaurants create “World’s Largest Jazz Brunch” in Jackson Square. French Quarter Festival’s 31st Anniversary will feature over 800 local musicians, more than 65 of New Orleans finest restaurants, free special events, and family fun with two exciting kid’s areas.
