By: Farrah Ross Appleman

New Orleans is gearing up for an especially busy festival season in 2020. With the Crescent City set to host the NCAA Women's Final Four Event on April 3-5, festival dates have been shuffled in order to accommodate the large sporting event. "We appreciate the leaders of our festival organizations working together to make New Orleans the best destination for every visitor," said Stephen Perry, President & CEO of New Orleans & Co.

Previously scheduled for April, the 27th annual New Orleans Wine and Food Experience (NOWFE) will now take place on March 18-22. French Quarter Fest (FQF) has been pushed back to April 16-19, less than a week after Jazz Fest. This past April, French Quarter Fest shattered attendance records of years past, drawing around 825,000 people.

NOWFE is a non-profit organization. 100% of proceeds from NOWFE events support culinary education programs across the city.
