About Fete Francaise

Fête Française is a free outdoor street festival hosted annually by Ecole Bilingue de la Nouvelle-Orléans at our uptown campus off of Magazine Street. Fête Française 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.

After a two year hiatus, Fête Française will be March 26, 2022! To celebrate this rebirth, 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 wristbands, and so much more.  Gear up for a day filled with French culture, music, dancing, cuisine, games and more.
