Abita Springs Busker Festival

WHO & WHAT

A busker is a street performer who works for tips.  We bring in some of the very best musicians each year. 

This ninth annual free festival was established to preserve and present Louisiana roots music and has grown in popularity with each passing year. 

Sponsored by the Abita Springs Opry and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival & Foundation, and with additional support this year from local Allstate agent Nazha Hadi, we are hoping that it will again be streamed live by radio station WWOZ.

On top of all that, the Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market folds into this scrumptious mix.  Buy local!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Just bring your lawn chair, sun screen, and dancing shoes.

Parking can be a challenge.  Try across Hwy. 59 behind Mama D's or on neighboring streets.  Also, the Middle School lot is usually open.

Lots of food and drinks available for purchase.  Restaurants and other food options are also a short walk away.

If you’re interested in being a food vendor, we have ten spaces available @ $130. Here’s the application.

And while you're here, don't miss the madness at the Abita Mystery House!
