French Quarter Festivals, Inc.
1984 FQF Ringer T-Shirt
The first French Quarter Festival took place in 1984 to remind locals and visitors alike of all that the beautiful, historic neighborhood had to offer while promoting its many small locally-owned businesses. It was the brainchild of then-mayor Dutch Morial and a small group of neighborhood residents and business owners.
Fast forward to 2023, when the son of one of the festival's founding members showed up to our press conference in his dad's original festival t-shirt! Not only was it still stylin', it remained a perfect encapsulation of all the French Quarter Festival is about: food, music, and fun for EVERYONE. Naturally, we had to re-make it.
