ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL 2019

ESSENCE FESTIVAL 2019 - 25TH ANNIVERSARY

July 4-8, 2019

It’s never too early to start planning for the Essence Festival. In 2019 EssenceFest will celebrate its 25th Anniversary of the country’s largest celebration of Black culture! In 2018 there were well over 510,000 attendees that visited EssenceFest and being that 2019 is the 25th Year, we are sure that record will be broken.


Essence Festival is set to jumpoff for the 25th Anniversary, July 4 – 8, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana for what will be the most unforgettable Festival yet! 

“The ESSENCE Festival represents culture, community and a powerful convening around one of the largest curated content experiences in the world,” commented ESSENCE Communications President Michelle Ebanks. “As we look forward to the Festival’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2019, we will continue to offer curated platforms of entertainment, empowerment, entrepreneurship, activism and more that will both engage and inspire Black women globally.”

Fun Fact: Essence had well over 510,000 attendees in 2018, but the city of New Orleans only have around 36,000 hotel rooms. So you do not want to wait! We sold out in 2018 after only 2 months of advertising. So, book your travel package with Classy Creation Events for another ULTIMATE Essence Experience! 

Don't miss our line up of parties that's sure to make your EssenceFest Experience one you will NEVER forget!

Parties like...

  • Oh Wow Look...It's That Damn Trolley Party! A Party on Wheels through New Orleans/French Quarter with our Live DJ and Complimentary Drinks. A different and more exciting experience than the normal Bourbon Street stuff. A fun start to the Essence! 

  • It's a Souuuuul Train Party...A "Beyonce Birthday" remake of the Grooviest 70s/80s and 90s Throwback Hip Hop Party that will bring back all those "that's my jam" music! DJ by Klef Styles & SGL Productions!
