Musician Sponsorships

Since 2012, our Musician Sponsorship Program has raised over $1 million – and every penny has gone directly to the 1,700+ artists who perform at our festivals!  We invite you to show your support for French Quarter Festival by sponsoring a performance; let the community know you love Louisiana music and in return we promise to promote your business to over half a million guests April 16-19, 2020.  Musician sponsorship is easy, affordable and comes with benefits!
