Marc Broussard to Headline New Free Festival Coming in October to New Orleans

Members of 11 local participating credit unions can get free tickets and enjoy a lineup of musical acts, food and entertainment.

NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans loves a good festival – and there’s a new one coming next month that’s free. The first-ever Credit Union Fest is happening on October 14, 2023 at the Shrine on Airline and it’s free for members of 11 different local credit unions in the Greater New Orleans area that are teaming up to host the excitement.

Credit Union Fest will feature bayou-soul artist Marc Broussard with performances by Groovy 7 and Big Sam’s Funky Nation keeping festival attendees entertained. Kids are invited to the family-friendly festival and will enjoy their own fun area with a playground of slides and tunnels. An array of food trucks and vendors, as well as beer and cocktails will be available for purchase.

Over one million Louisianans are members of a credit union, but between 70 and 80 percent of those people are members of credit unions that are not in Louisiana. Credit Union Fest is designed to celebrate those members who chose locally operated credit unions and excite potential members to join. Louisiana-owned credit unions offer competitive rates, superior service, security, a broad range of financial services and technology, and the peace of mind that comes from being an owner of your own credit union.

Tickets to Credit Union Fest are free for members and available for pickup at these 11 participating credit unions: Jefferson Parish Employees’ Federal Credit Union, Instep Credit Union, GNO Federal Credit Union, New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union, NODA Federal Credit Union, IRFCU, Louisiana Federal Credit Union, St. Tammany Federal Credit Union, OnPath Federal Credit Union, Xplore Federal Credit Union and UNO Federal Credit Union. For those who are not yet members of one of these credit unions, you can become eligible for Credit Union Fest tickets by opening up an account in person at any of these locations.

Credit Union Fest is October 14, 2023 from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the Shrine on Airline, 6000 Airline Dr., Metairie, LA 70003. The festival’s official flyer and QR code for more information can be viewed by clicking here, or you can go online to
