We do not want to give to much away, but The Rock & Rouge Women’s Music and Food Festival 2020 is going to change the way New Orleans thinks about festivals, bringing the market a whole new experience.

This year, The Rock & Rouge Women’s Music and Food Festival is experimenting with new ideas and experiences. We will be selling tickets that also come along with your very own picnic basket entree. Seating will be close to the Women Who Rock stage and vary by ticket.

The men’s experience will also be different this year. Coined “The Goldmine,” we will be hosting the NOLA Gold Rugby team. Men and women team members are coming out to play a light game rugby and provide lessons on the sport.

We have partnered with Mad Science, Microsoft, and Upturn Arts for the Rock & Rouge Foundation’s STEAM 2020. Mad Science is going to be teaching children aged 8-14 to learn about the periodic table of elements, Microsoft will be introducing the kids to technology with their X-box’s and tablets, and Upturn Arts will be hosting our arts and craft table.


Festivals are all about the experiences these days because when you are in New Orleans most everything is an experience. The Rock & Rouge Women’s Music & Food festival & beyond is no different but, in fact, combining many different experiences catered to women and young girls at the forefront. In an addition, there will be in area called “The Dugout” to celebrate a late Happy Father’s Day to those who want to attend with family or friends. The experiences for the day will be as follows:
