The Eighth Annual Satchmo SummerFest Is back at the Old US Mint! July 31-August 3, 2008

3 August 2008

Locals and visitors alike are celebrating the life of Louis Armstrong with a fun-filled weekend of activities and music.  We went to the edge of the French Quarter yesterday and found four stages all located within the Old US Mint. There were the Traditional Jazz Stage, Contemporary Jazz Stage, and a Brass Band Stage; Plus a Children’s Stage and we noted that they had scheduled speaker seminars with nationally renowned speakers. 

There are quite a few local festivals in New Orleans that are year by year gaining popularty and are expected to grow like the big events such as French Quarter fest and Jazz Fest. For more information, go to FQFI and read all about them.
