Well it is finally here, glorious French Quarter Fest. While this “Locals Only” festival has lost the right to much of that claim, it is still an enjoyable festival that won’t require selling your Kidney to attend. Plus, following a few simple tips can help you avoid the crowds and tourists and re-capture much of that “Locals Only” feel. This week we’ll be giving you the low-down on where to go, what to eat and how to do it.
The first step to achieving an excellent experience at FQF is getting there in the most hassle free way. To help you do that, we’ve updated our own logistics guide for getting you down there. It is accessible here.
Now that you’re all planned on how you’re getting here, you need to know how to move about and where to find shade. We’ve found there is no reason to re-create the wheel, so we’re going to rely on the encyclopedic French Quarter Fest Logistics Guide by our friends at He Said, She Said NOLA. Their guide covers almost every logistical aspect of the Fest once you’re there and does so very well. Get to reading that here.
Stay tuned throughout the week as we update the rest of our FQF guides, most importantly directing you to the best food stations.
