About this trip

Are you ready to Sprinkle Your Black Girl Magic all over NEW ORLEANS??

Join us for a weekend of pure Essence at Essence Festival 2023!


There’s nothing New Orleans lacks for when it comes to a weekend away at Essence Festival. The Big Easy’s got it all: award-winning restaurants, sexy cocktail bars, stellar shopping, endless history, and hot hotels with charm to spare.


Essence Festival, is largest music festival in the country that celebrates African-American culture. The event was originally planned as a one-time event to celebrate the silver jubilee of  Essence magazine. Famous as ‘the party with a purpose,’ the event’s success encouraged the organizers to make it into an annual music festival. The main idea behind the event is to empower and offer a platform to musicians, artists, speakers, and entrepreneurs of the African-American community. 


Hotel Accommodations

 At Hotel Vinache, you’ll find yourself in the heart of an alluring city with deep roots, many stories to tell, and a soul that comes alive in the form of food, fun, and dynamic culture. Discover an elegant, boutique New Orleans hotel on Canal Street, steps away from The French Quarter and Bourbon Street, where historic venues ooze with personality, music spills out into the streets, and the charm of the city seeps into your heart. Memorable city, memorable stay. 


New Orleans is a city with deep roots and stories to tell and so do we. Whether it’s the tales of our past or fresh new ones, the best places to visit or pointing you to the coolest speakeasy in town.

Travel Notes

Some great things to know:


- To get around New Orleans, we would mostly be using the Street Cars/Trolley. Price is $3 for the entire day

- Ridesharing is very expensive during the peak hours of Essence Fest

- Frenchman Street is way better than Bourbon Street

- Best place to get a Hurricane Drink is Tropical Isle

- Don't rush to Cafe Du Monde, because there are other places that serve better beignets

- Stay hydrated

- Bring sunscreen and hand sanitizer

- Follow Essence Fest on social media to stay updated on announcements and ticket sales
