The 2016 French Quarter Festival Day-to-Day Lineup

by Ashlee Nicole
French Quarter Fest 2016

It’s that time of year again! One of my favorite times of the year is near — it’s festival season!! When festivals start being announced, you know what time it is: It’s time for good weather, good music, and GOOD FOOD! Who doesn’t love that?!

The 33rd annual French Quarter Festival will be jammed packed with 23 stages and over 65 food tents. But, before enjoying the festival, join in the April 7th FQF second line parade starting at the 100 block of Bourbon St., marching to Jackson Square.

Aside from the music, THE best thing about FQF is the food. This year, I can’t wait to savor the tastings of Vaucresson Sausage, Desire Oyster Bar, Muriel’s, Praline Connection, Dickie Brennan’s, Restaurant R’evolution, House of Blues, Jacques-Imo’s, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House, to name a few.

But enough of the fat talk, here’s the lineup:
