A whole weekend full of great food, good tunes, and fun for all hits NOLA on April 9- are you ready? It’s not too late to plan your weekend- or extended stay if the circumstances are right. With the jazz music starting in the morning and going strong into the night, a pair of comfortable shoes may be your best friend over the three-day fest. If you’re ready to get “foot loose,” check out the featured event!

For the first time, you can take advantage of 30-minute dance classes between each live stage performance!  The classes will be offered throughout the event at the Traditional Jazz State  at the French Market.  So if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to swing, fox-trot, jitterbug, second-line, Lindy Hop, or Charleston, this is your chance for free instruction from some of the area’s best teachers.    On April 10 and 11, the Children’s Headquarters on the riverfront plaza at Audubon Aquarium is hosting classes for even the tiniest dancers. The best part? All classes are free and open to the public. See the itinerary for details.

Offering the best of what the Big Easy has to offer, the French Quarter Fest is the perfect whirlwind taste of New Orleans culture. A popular weekend for the locals, it’s a great way to not only “visit New Orleans, but live it!”
