The best music, food ,art. And bring the kids!

Free to the public, Gentilly Fest celebrates all things "Gentilly," including continuous live music on four stages, sumptuous food from a variety of local restaurants & caterers and fine arts and crafts for sale.

We have activities for children in our Kids' Village including pony rides, a kids stage, an NOFD 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.

Laissez Les Bon Temp Roulez - For a Good Cause

Gentilly Fest supports the New Orleans Police, Fire, EMS, Children's Music camps and other New Orleans organizations that need our help.
