NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA (November 4, 2009) – French Quarter Festivals, Inc (FQFI) is proud to announce the inception of its new membership program, the ‘Fest Family’. Fest Family memberships were developed to provide festival-goers with a true ‘insiders’ experience and to ensure a strong future for French Quarter Festivals, Inc. Fest Family memberships provide essential funding for these free community festivals and events, which employ musicians and artists, impact young generations of performers, preserve our unique culture and heritage, attract visitors, and add to the quality of life in the community.
All ‘Fest Family’ members enrolled by January 1, 2010 will be entered to win, a weekend at the Royal Sonesta in the Presidential Suite for French Quarter Fest 2010 or two round trip tickets on Continental Airlines!
Contributions at each and every level will directly benefit the organization and provide greatly needed assistance, allowing the organization to maintain these high quality events and continue the celebration of New Orleans’ unique culture and heritage. Membership levels were designed to appeal to individual partners as well as to larger corporate sponsors. Levels are categorized with a uniquely ‘French Quarter feel’, with names such as “Chartres Member”, Bourbon Street, Woldenberg Park, and Jackson Square levels, and include uniquely FQFI benefits such as tickets to the French Quarter Festival Kick-off party, passes to the invitation-only Satchmo SummerFest opening reception, festival posters and merchandise, and access to VIP hospitality areas during French Quarter Festival. Ranging from $35 to $1,000, memberships are structured to fit all budgets.
Members ARE the festival, and an integral part of the FQFI family. The French Quarter Festival family has been together for 26 years and continues to grow. The ‘Fest Family’ will ensure that FQFI can produce FREE events for years to come along with the support from our sponsors, as well as beverage and merchandise sales. Since is inception in 1984, French Quarter Festival, has grown from the ‘locals festival’ to the “Largest FREE Music Festival in the South”. Throughout the years, other FREE events have been added to the cultural calendar produced by French Quarter Festivals, Inc., (FQFI) including Satchmo SummerFest and Christmas New Orleans Style. All of this has been made possible by the dedication of supporters.
French Quarter Festivals, Inc. takes great pride in the community and supports local industry by hiring only local contractors (stage/sound/booths, etc.) – all money, earned and spent, stays within the state of Louisiana. FQFI events directly impact the New Orleans economy and local retailers, restaurants, and hotels rely on festival weekends. Additional support is needed to help build for the future and continue producing the best festivals, family activities, and live LOCAL music.
