Back to the French Quarter in 2022

We've missed you, and we can't wait to see you back in the New Orleans French Quarter for our 36th annual Festival, March 23-27, 2022. Plan now to attend five days of literary revelry, including writing workshops, theatre events, literary panels, scholars conference, literary walking tours, music events, culinary and cocktail events, and much more.

Individual tickets and passes will go on sale in February, but if you want to see it all, the all-access VIP Pass is your best deal.

And it's time to become a Friend of Tennessee. Our annual membership campaign is in full swing with discounts, merchandise, passes, and other perks.

If you plan to attend the Festival, please read our Covid-19 Protocols for a healthy environment.

We can't wait to see you in New Orleans!
