Abita Springs Busker Festival



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. 

With support from the Abita Springs Opry and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival & Foundation, 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!



New date: March 24, 2019 at the Abita Beer Stage in Abita Springs Park.

The lineup of bands will be announced a couple of months before the event.

Rain date: March 31, 2019

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'd like to participate as a vendor, please send your email request to Mike.

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