With 27 stages, French Quarter Fest is certainly giving Jazz Fest a run for it’s money. French Quarter Fest is considered the local version of Jazz Fest – it’s free to get in and many of the same food vendors from Jazz Fest will also be at French Quarter Fest. Plus, the location of French Quarter Fest is a bit more convenient – especially for anyone trying to park.
FQ Fest starts tomorrow at 10:30. Native Tip: If you can, go on Thursday or Friday. The weekends can be extremely packed.
