Pirates' Alley 2020 Due to the COVID19 events, The Pirate's Alley Festival is postponed until a firm date can be determined. Thank you and please check back with us regularly for updates.
The Pirates' Alley Art Show originated in 1930 by a group of local artists. The traditions and show continues today with fellow artists. In 1980, the New Orleans Art Association became the show's sponsor. 2020 is no exception to the tradition and will take place the weekend before the French Quarter Festival in The Historic French Quarter. This year we have some exciting additions to the show with artists' demos, a parade, food and beverages. Please visit us as the artists display their creations on Pirates Alley, Pere Antoine Alley, Royal Street, and The Cabildo Alley on Saturday, March 28th and Sunday, March 29th, from 10 AM to 6 PM. Come out and visit us as we celebrate this year's show and enjoy the sites, sounds, and unique charm of the New Orleans French Quarter.
(**NEW in 2020) Artist's Quick Draw Competition & Show on Friday, March 27th, starting at 8:15 AM.
