Food, music, and good times is the anthem of New Orleans! The French Quarter Festivals Inc. is proud to host the 28th Annual French Quarter Festival throughout the streets of downtown New Orleans. Last year, the 2010 French Quarter Festival set unbelievable records bringing over 512,000 locals and out-of-towners to the Quarter. This year is no exception and the Quarter is getting ready for the hustle and bustle of one exciting weekend!
Food vendors include some of New Orleans greatest cuisine ranging from Plum Street Snoballs to Superior Grill to The Court of Two Sisters. Whether it’s their first year participating in the Festival or they have been part of the fun since the beginning, the restaurants cannot wait to showcase their most popular dishes. There isn’t a better way to get a taste of the city than at the French Quarter Festival.
If your mouth isn’t drooling by now, then checkout the musical line-up on the seventeen stages that span the Square. The music rings through the city ranging from jazz to foxtrot. Everyone looks forward to hearing the sounds that began at the heart of Louisiana. Grab your friends and family and bring them down to the ol’ Crescent City for the ultimate New Orleans experience. The fun begins on Thursday, April 7 and doesn’t end until the sunsets of Sunday April 10, 2011.
