More than one dozen stages will rock the French Quarter throughout the three-day weekend. Music lovers will find traditional and contemporary jazz, Latin, rhythm and blues, Cajun and zydeco, New Orleans funk, classical, swing, rock, international and the many diverse sounds that are part of this city's rich cultural gumbo. Look for more than 100 of New Orleans' favorite musical performers to entertain—with a whole raft of other New Orleans legends and international all-stars.

Plan to attend the festival's signature event, the "world's largest jazz brunch" in Woldenberg Riverfront Park and the French Quarter — a tantalizing spread of beverages and specialty items from some of the best known restaurants in the Crescent City.

French Quarter Festival also features free tours of hidden patios and gardens of French Quarter homes, a Pirate's Alley art show, the world's largest praline, fireworks on the Mississippi River and more.
