About Fête

Fête Française is a free outdoor festival hosted annually by Ecole Bilingue de la Nouvelle-Orléans at our uptown campus off of Magazine Street. Our Fête carries the distinction of being the only true French festival in New Orleans. In addition to serving as the school’s largest fundraiser, this fun-filled event celebrates all things uniquely French and helps to keep the Francophone heritage alive and well in New Orleans and Louisiana through a variety of food, music, art, entertainment, children’s activities and more.


This year marks our 20th annual Fête Française! To celebrate this milestone, we are making this year’s celebration the best one yet, featuring our largest ever of New Orleans’ top musicians and restaurants, Le Marché of artistic vendors, Le Jardin de Bière, special VIP wristbands, and so much more. This year’s theme will be the famed “Tour de France” so gear up for a day filled with French culture, music, dancing, cuisine… and come ride with us!
