Charleston Fest is a labor of love for the fast living, Prohibition defying, swinging folk of the Coolidge and Hoover years....while also giving back to the community.  We hope to grow every year and become the premiere Charleston themed festival in New Orleans.

This first year we want to encourage as much participation as possible by providing bands, dancing, costume and dance contests, and specially priced cocktails for a suggested donation of $10. That's only one sawbuck! We have an amazing venue in Spitfire on Decatur, and all proceeds benefit the non-profit group "Friday Night before Mardi Gras."

So come all you flappers and hep cats, put on your spats and cut a rug at the Charleston Fest!
