Come for the 4th of July and stay for Essence Festival. It’s a celebration of African-American women, but y’all know that. The 25th Anniversary Festival is July 5-7, 2020.

Book your girls trip at a New Orleans Bed & Breakfast.
Missy Elliott and Mary J. Blige are the headliners. BUT, you really need to see New Orleans Queen of Bounce, BIG FREEDIA. It’s a party!
