"The best music, food, art.  And bring the kids!"  Free admission Gentilly Fest celebrates all things New Orleans!

It has the best live music, delicious food from a variety of local restaurants & caterers, fine arts and crafts and family friendly fun!  We have activities for children in our Kids' Village including pony rides, a kids stage, an New Orleans Fire Department fire truck, face painting, an imagination playground, pottery making, garden crafts and much more... 

Gentilly Fest also offers a variety of practical recovery information offered by local organizations and an opportunity for neighbors and friends to come together with their families in a safe, festive environment to build closer relationships with our police & fire departments, elected officials and each other.
