Now in its 8th year, The 2019 New Orleans Sacred Music Festival is entirely FREE and open to anyone and everyone. Sacred music is powerful. It can heal and uplift us and awaken the profound connections that runs through our diverse cultures and communities. Performers are drawn from all the city’s spiritual communities, and some acts are international. Both ancient and cutting-edge, the festival is fun, lively, and full of magical moments.
