Plan to be in New Orleans for Satchmo Summerfest…the premier American jazz festival dedicated to the life, music and legacy of New Orleans' native son, Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. This free community event is produced by the same great organization that produces French Quarter Festival and Christmas New Orleans Style!

The event features live, local music on four stages; fascinating speakers, seminars and discusssions, special events such as Louis Armstrong Birthday Party, Satchmo Art Show, Kids' activities, Jazz Mass, second line parade, 'Red Beans & Ricely Yours' luncheon, Trumpet Tribute, Satchmo Club Strut, and more!

And, of course, it wouldn't be a festival without fabulous food and drinks! Great New Orleans restaurants will be serving all of Satchmo's favorite dishes and lots of Abita beer and Plum St. Snowballs will be on hand.
