French Quarter Fest kicks off the celebration  with a night you won’t want to miss!  The annual gala serves as a fundraiser for the non-profit French Quarter Festivals, Inc. and provides fans with a direct way to support the organization.  All gala guests will experience a night with Grammy-winning trumpeter Nicholas Payton, full open bar, dinner, and a silent auction. Widely considered one of the greatest artists of our time, Payton began his career at the age of ten. His latest project, Afro Caribbean Mixtape, fuses the traditions of New Orleans hip-hop, mixtape, and spoken-word. A Tribe Called Gumbolia will also bring Mardi Gras Indian drumming to the event. Honorary co-chairs are Mayor LaToya Cantrell, Chevron’s Gulf of Mexico Vice President Mark Hatfield, and Irma Thomas.
