Abita Springs Busker Festival

WHO & WHAT

A busker is a street musician who performs for tips.  We bring in some of the very best each year. 

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

With support from the Abita Springs Opry and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, it will again be streamed live by radio station WWOZ.

On top of all that, the Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market folds into this scrumptous mix.
