Gentilly Fest

Gentilly Fest is an annual event that brings together the vibrant culture of the Gentilly neighborhood. With a mission to highlight the local music, arts, and strengthen community bonds, the festival aims to foster local economic growth and promote new businesses. This nonprofit, community-focused organization also strives to entertain both tourists and locals while giving back to the community. 

The festival features live music on three stages, showcasing the talent of local musicians. Attendees can savor a diverse range of culinary delights from various local restaurants and caterers. Additionally, the festival provides a platform for local artisans and vendors to sell their fine arts and crafts, contributing to the local economy. If you bring the little ones, make sure to stop by Kids’ Village to enjoy activities like face painting, pottery, garden crafts, and even a kids entertainment stage. 

The Gentilly Festival seeks to strengthen the bond between the community and first responders.  Proceeds are used to support and appreciate the tireless efforts of law enforcement officers, firefighters, and paramedics, and give them funds for furniture, office supplies and other general small office equipment.
