Essence Festival takes place during Fourth of July Weekend of each year. For four days, the city is filled with eager attendees creating their own Essence experiences. With different expos, activations, parties, and concerts, Essence Festival is a citywide event. The festival’s home base is located in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center during the day and the concerts begin in the evening at the Caesars Superdome. Other events, shops and giveaways can be found throughout the Central Business District/Downtown and the Arts + Warehouse District. Be on the lookout for special events, promotions, and recommendations to check out during the rest of the city as well.
It’s never too early to start planning for Essence Fest. Keep an eye out for flight deals and discounts. Whether you’re flying or driving, it is recommended that visitors arrive midweek to allow themselves time to explore the city before the festival. Beginning Thursday and running through Sunday, Essence Fest will feature daily activities and nightly concerts.
Yes of course! You will have a 3 day pass and all access to 3 days of nightlife, concerts, sponsor lounges, events and pop-ups.
There’s a photo op around every corner at Essence Festival. From elaborate signage, interactive activations, and a host of celebrity guests, make sure you’re Instagram-ready at any given moment. The July weather is the perfect opportunity for colorful sundresses, bold fringe tops, and sandals galore. Aim for cute comfort because Essence Fest is filled with walking.
The Essence Festival daytime experience takes place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center with daily, free admission from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Dynamic programming and experiences intended to motivate and educate can be found throughout the Convention Center. Anything from live cooking demonstrations to panel discussions with community activists and politicians are festival highlights.
Once the sun sets, the Superdome comes alive. Opening daily at 6:00 p.m., the all-star Essence Fest line-up commences with some of the best in R&B, hip-hop, funk, gospel, and soul. Categorized as either mainstage or superlounge, performances and concerts take place in the Dome throughout the evening. It is highly recommended to arrive early for all superlounge performances as they do have capacity restrictions.
