From humble beginnings nearly 30 years ago, Gretna Fest has grown and because of our premier location on the Mississippi River - across from New Orleans - has become the best place to Revel on the River.

Every year, they feature the best in local, regional, national and international talent, food, art and crafts. And this year, we're back with more legendary musical acts. More gorgeous views of the mighty Mississippi. More fantastic flavors. And more fun for the entire family. All the sights, sounds and tastes that make Gretna Fest one of the premier fall festivals are yours to come and discover.

At the Fest, savor a huge variety of food, from nearly 50 vendors, as well as a variety of exciting villages featuring food and entertainment. Find a treasure among our many arts and crafts. Bring your children to our all-new Kids Corner, located next to the German Village. Plus, enhance your Fest experience at our new Club Backstage. It's located in the Gretna Cultural Center for the Arts and features live music, football gameday watch parties, a full bar and more!

It's all here. Fun and enjoyment for everyone, plus we have easy access to and from the Fest by using our Free Shuttle service along with free parking at Oakwood Center and the Jefferson Parish School Systems Building at 501 Manhattan Boulevard in Harvey.

We want you in Gretna as we Revel on the River at Gretna Fest October 7, 8 and 9.
