Don’t miss Satchmo Summerfest at the Old U.S. Mint in the New Orleans French Quarter.
The festival features music all weekend on festival stages featuring local musicians playing traditional jazz, contemporary jazz, brass bands. The festival also offers kids’ activities and entertainment, as well as free seminars and discussions about Louis Armstrong, the iconic New Orleans trumpet player.
Every year, the festival throws a Louis Armstrong Birthday Party, a Satchmo Art Show, Sunday morning Jazz Mass at historic St. Augustine Church in Treme with a traditional second line parade, a Trumpet Tribute to close the festival, the Satchmo Club Strut, and more!
The festival serves up all the New Orleans cuisine and dishes that Louis Armstrong loved in ‘Red Bean Alley,’ with Food & Drinks: Abita Beer as ‘the local beer for the locals’ festival.’ Don’t forget Plum Street Snoballs for dessert!
This event is free and open to the public.
