Fortier Park has flourished under the tutelage of Bobby Wozniak for decades. However, the tremendous beauty in Fortier Park comes at a price.

So, once again, on Saturday, April 20th, Bobby Wozniak and Bob McGuire along with the help of the Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association will have the Fortier Festival. There will be a silent auction. Please bid generously to keep the best pocket park in New Orleans growing strong. And, if you’ve been to previous Fortier Festivals you know that really cool musical surprises happen at the Fortier Festival. So mark your calendar and bring lots of money on April 20th to the corner of Mystery and Esplanade in Faubourg St. John. Faubourg St. John and Fortier Park are where big dreams grow!
