1 min read | may 20, 2022
In April 2022, the annual French Quarter Festival (FQF) presented by Chevron returned to New Orleans after a two-year hiatus.
The event featured performances from more than 1,800 musicians, including Irma Thomas, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Amanda Shaw and Rickie Lee Jones.
But music wasn’t the festival’s only attraction.
by the numbers
Through our ongoing sponsorship of the FQF, Chevron is supporting the Greater New Orleans community.
- The average annual economic impact of the FQF is approximately $190 million
- More than 825,000 people attended the festival this year, and more than 1,500 kids visited the STEM Zone
- When the event was canceled in 2020 and 2021, Chevron donated approximately $150,000 to the musicians and gig workers who were scheduled to perform.
Music is in New Orleans’ DNA. It’s the birthplace of jazz and dozens of iconic musicians, including Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino and Katie Webster.
The FQF has been an important part of the community for almost 40 years, and we have been a sponsor for the last nine. We see our support of the FQF as an opportunity to celebrate New Orleans’ distinctive music, culture and cuisine.
