As the Marketing Director for the New Orleans Guest House, nestled quaintly in the heart of the vibrant French Quarter, I’m thrilled to extend a warm, glittering invitation to the upcoming Freret Street Festival! Picture this: a day bursting at the seams with culture, music, art, and the tantalizing aromas of exceptional cuisine. This isn’t just any festival; it’s a six-block fiesta stretching from Napoleon Ave all the way to Valmont Street, happening on March 30, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mark your calendars, darlings, because this is one event you won’t want to miss!

Imagine strolling down Freret Street, your senses enveloped in a kaleidoscope of sounds, sights, and scents. With over 200 artists showcasing their talents and more than 216 art and food booths, your biggest dilemma will be deciding where to feast your eyes (and taste buds) first! And let’s not forget the music – oh, the music! Three stages will host an eclectic mix of tunes guaranteed to have you dancing in the streets. Whether you’re a jazz enthusiast, a rock ‘n’ roll devotee, or a hip-hop aficionado, there’s something for everyone.

But wait, there’s more! Dive into the rich cultural tapestry of New Orleans with an African dance and drumming performance by N’Fungola Sibo. Feel the rhythm, embrace the energy, and maybe even pick up a move or two. And if you’re feeling adventurous, NOLA Capoeira will dazzle you with a demonstration of capoeira – that mesmerizing blend of martial art and dance that hails from Brazil. Trust me, it’s an absolute must-see.

For the animal lovers among us (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?), Zeus’ Rescues will be there with adorable fur babies ready to find their forever homes. Could there be a more perfect end to a festival day than bringing home a new four-legged family member? I think not!

And let’s not forget the incredible array of food options. From mouthwatering local delicacies to international cuisines, your taste buds are in for a treat. Whether you’re craving something savory or sweet, there’s something to satisfy every palate.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Karen, this sounds fantastic, but where oh where shall I stay?” Fear not, my dear festival-goers! The New Orleans Guest House is at your service, offering clean, affordable accommodations with a side of Southern charm. Our warm and welcoming staff are here to ensure your stay is as delightful as the festival itself. We may not promise the moon and the stars, but we do promise a cozy bed, a friendly smile, and the kind of hospitality that’ll make you feel right at home.
