Our History

In 1984…

our nonprofit has showcased Louisiana artists, cuisine, and culture. We were founded when pre-World’s Fair street and sidewalk construction adversely affected French Quarter businesses. To support the neighborhood, Mayor Dutch Morial conceived the idea of a uniquely New Orleans event that would attract both visitors and locals to the Vieux Carre and, subsequently, stimulate a healthy business environment. In 2020, our mission is more relevant and important than ever.

OUR MISSION

French Quarter Festivals, Inc. (FQFI) annually produces three festivals: French Quarter Festival, Satchmo SummerFest, and Holidays New Orleans Style. FQFI is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the Vieux Carré and the City of New Orleans through high quality special events and activities that showcase the culture and heritage of this unique city, contribute to the economic well-being of the community, and instill increased pride in the people of New Orleans.
