Greenway Fest 2020


The Greenway’s Signature Festival • Free • Live Music • Food & Art Vendors • Family Activities Storytelling • Guided Walking Tours • Celebrating Local Culture • Community Input

GREENWAY FEST will bring together 3,000 New Orleanians to celebrate the Lafitte Greenway, enjoy local live music, food, drink, and crafts, share stories of the Greenway on guided walking tours, and contribute their ideas to shape the future of this great public space.

THIS ANNUAL SPRING EVENT, newly renamed “Greenway Fest,” began in 2005 as “Hike the Lafitte Greenway.” Community members bushwhacked along an abandoned railroad corridor, and dreamed of transforming the long-blighted space into a trail and park for New Orleans.
