Fest Days Are The Best Days

It's time to get geared up for French Quarter Festival presented by Chevron.

The trumpet flags are flying high and the Abita kegs are ready to be tapped. It's time for French Quarter Festival 2018. We rounded up a few things to look forward to at this year's festivities...
 
Foodie News: New to the grub lineup this year is Café Beignet, Café Dauphine, The Company Burger, The Daily Beet, Flamingo A-Go-Go and SoBou. Want a little help staying on the health track? The FQF app will help you find food vendors that offer gluten-free, vegetarian, and/or sugar-free menus. Plus, look for Eat Fit NOLA seals of approval.
 
Tricentennial Vibes: To commemorate the big 300, hit the Tricentennial Homecoming Pavilion near the Jack Daniel’s Stage to check out exhibits showcasing New Orleans notables throughout history, a hospitality lounge, and the One Time In NOLA story booth. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of FQF, pick up a souvenir flag.
 
Kick Your LaCroix Addiction: Be on the lookout for the next new thing in sparkling water - Bubly. Beverage booths like Finlandia will be serving up mixed sips like the Bubly Seabreeze.
 
New in Tunes: The lineup includes 30 debuts, including singer-songwriter Amanda Ducorbier, Chocolate Milk – the New Orleans funk band that worked with Allen Toussaint - Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble, Sweet Olive String Band and Zachary Richard.
 
Roll VIP: Step up your fest game with the brand new Fest Family Experience. For all four days of the fest, you'll get access to the hospitality lounge, shaded lounge seating, an elevated viewing stand near the Abita Beer Stage, private bars with champagne, wine and beer, snacks, air-conditioned restrooms, merch discounts, memorabilia, exclusive programming and more.
