Folk Magic Festival

717 Orleans Street
New Orleans, LA 70116

New Orleans is a magical place... historical, haunted, and full of the Spirits of the land. Know that you are stepping into a vortex, especially in the French Quarter, and it can sometimes be disorienting.

We want you to have a fabulous time while you're here, and in order to do so, you should be mindful and aware. Drink plenty of water and stay safe.

The streets are very uneven and it is very important to watch your step. Be Carful, don't text and walk and be mindful of your surroundings at all times.

The Quarter is a friendly place, but there are some ner'do-wells out there. Always walk with a buddy at night and be aware of your personal space around you. Keep your valuables close and tucked away. Make sure you double check that you have all of your belongings with you when leaving from anywhere.
