Satchmo SummerFest

Old U.S. Mint,

Website: http://fqfi.org/satchmo

When the City of New Orleans was planning a tribute to the late Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong on the centennial of his birth, they had no way of knowing how successful such an event would be.

Outdoor events at SatchmoFest feature live bands on several stages, starring some of New Orleans' top musicians. Many of them will pay their tributes to Armstrong and his music. Samplings of New Orleans' world-famous culinary delicacies will be offered for sale in and around the festival site, while refreshing Southern-style beverages and other soft drinks will keep you cool and hydrated.

Sponsored by French Quarter Festivals, Inc., the organization that also sponsors the highly successful French Quarter Festival and Christmas New Orleans Style, "SatchmoFest," as it is commonly known, has evolved into one of the top celebrations in a city internationally renowned for its large-scale festivities. For many people who regularly attend the festival it is the highlight of the summer season.
