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. 

2020 will be our tenth annual free festival. It was established to preserve and present Louisiana roots music and has grown in popularity with each passing year. 

In 2019, it was sponsored by the Abita Springs Opry and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival & Foundation, with additional support from local Allstate agent Nazha Hadi at the Hadi Agency.

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.

Our hot food vendors are juried and we have high standards!  Restaurants and other food options are also a short walk away. Additionally, the regular Sunday Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market is going on right there in the Park. Wow, too many choices! If you would like to be a vendor at the Market, click here.

John Preble provided this year’s handbill so, while you're here, don't miss the madness just two blocks away at his Abita Mystery House!
