NEW ORLEANS - The French Quarter Fest is one of the biggest free festivals in the Crescent City.

Originally scheduled for April 16 - April 19, 2020, the festival date was pushed back to early October, but has now been cancelled for the entire year of 2020.

The festival was postponed until the beginning of October, but according to WWL-TV,  organizers for the French Quarter Fest announced Thursday they were cancelling it until 2021 for the safety of fans, musicians, staff and partners.

Satchmo SummerFest, an annual music festival held in honor of legendary New Orleans trumpeter Louis Armstrong has also been cancelled. This decision came from French Quarter Festival Inc., who has been putting on the Satchmo Fest for 20 years.
