Hello Timolynn!


My name is Julia Moore and I am the new Manager of Volunteers, Educational Programming, and Membership with French Quarter Festivals, Inc. I wanted to introduce myself and share with you some of the volunteer opportunities we have during 2016 French Quarter Festival presented by Chevron.


French Quarter Festival presented by Chevron is Thursday, April 7-10 this year. We are still looking for volunteers to help us in our beverage booths, merchandise booths, information booths, and special events. We would love if you were able to share our volunteer opportunities with the Neighborhood Partnership Network community.


Below are links to volunteer information on our website and our volunteer schedule and sign up page. Please let me know if you have any questions. Hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day!
