  1. I’ve always wanted to visit New Orleans, and now thar I know of this festival, even more so. I bet there will be lots of music and dancing. Do local bands play at that event too? 

    I am going to have to wait until next year, but I am looking forward to it. I’ll certainly also support local businesses.

    1. Thank you Christine. Local businesses are definitely supported during Essence. The Business Expo is held at the Convention center where there are loads of local and outside vendors presenting their supplies and services. Hope you can make next one!

  2. This would be quite a tour and a good way to not only explore the city, but really dig deep into the city’s history and culture as well. We can cover a lot of ground in four days and learn a lot, especially from someone like me who’s never been to New Orleans before. 

  3. Wow, it’s here again, another opportunity to get out of stress and work, its Essence Music Festival. I was in New Orleans last year for this same event and it was an amazing experience. You guys should try and attend, I promise you’ll not regret it. Its an avenue to appreciate African American women and music, it’s always interesting, from the sight of town, to the concerts, shopping and lots more. I’ll man sure I try my best to attend again this time. Thanks for this post, I like it.

  5. The Essence Music Festival has always been one of the best and biggest celebrations of African American women and the music has been top notch. Other major festivals like AfroFest or Broccoli City pale in comparison to the Essence Music Festival and in the rich environs of New Orleans, it will be an incredible experience. If you want incomparable musical experience celebrating all of the accomplishments of African American women, look no further than the Essence Music Festival. 

  6. Celebrating women and music, especially African-American women and music is a great idea. I didn’t realize that a whole festival has been created for this musical niche. I can imagine that arena bursting with energy and excitement during that celebration. What a great idea this is.

    Thanks for sharing this amazing event to the world.
