Join Wanderfest in 2021
Wanderfest 2021 will take place over the weekend of March 13-14 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Room blocks are available across the city at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, HI New Orleans Hostel, New Orleans Marriott, and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel.
There is no other festival out there yet like Wanderfest. It will be a jam-packed, inspirational weekend for festival-goers that also supports talented women leaders, performers, and entrepreneurs both locally and from around the world.
What Happens at Wanderfest
Wanderfest is designed by women who travel for women who travel. We’re creating a space where women can feel motivated for their next journey, picking up valuable tips and tricks to use for future travel adventures.
Wanderfest is also a place to meet hundreds of other women just like you! Women for whom travel is an integral part of life. Think of this as a reunion with all your best friends…except you just haven’t met most of them yet!
Our event will take place at the Spanish Plaza at the Riverwalk in New Orleans. We’ll feature a main stage with talks from top women travelers, as well as performances from emerging musical artists from around the globe.
Our vendor marketplace will also showcase women-owned travel companies, products, and services that travelers can use for their next trip.
Finally, Wanderfest will host the first-ever Wander Woman Parade! We are so excited for this New Orleans-style Second Line down the French Quarter to celebrate women and raise funds for a local charity.
