Know Before You Go

Do you already have your tickets to FesitGals? Well, we can wait to see you. This year is going to be amazing!

Here are some helpful tips from us to you to make sure your weekend is the best:

Local Weather

Temperatures in late July generally ranges from the mid 90s to upper 80s.

What to Wear

Cool, comfortable, and casual day wear. Even though the temperatures outside are warm, it would be safe to pack a sweater – the conference room can get chilly.

Don’t forget to pack a fun hat for the Bodacious Bras For A Cause Brunch (and make sure you have room in your suitcase to take a bra home!).

Be sure to pack your flip-flops and favorite glo-wear for our Stiletto Stroll Glo-Parade. We know how cute your heels are, but we don’t want any sprained or broken bones!


Louis Armstrong International Airport offers several transportation options. Ground transportation can be accessed outside of the baggage claim levels.


A cab ride costs $33.00 from the airport to the Central Business District (CBD), where the JW Marriott is located, for one or two persons and $14.00 (per passenger) for three or more passengers. Pick-up is on the lower level, outside the baggage claim area. There may be an additional charge for extra baggage. Taxis are required to offer a credit card payment option.


For those driving to the JW Marriott, you have two parking options:

JW Marriott:

  • Daily: Valet parking-$42 daily

Premium Parking Lot- 716 Iberville St:

  • Daily: $9 day if you book in advance

  • Overnight: $30

To get the discounted rate at Premium Parking, you must book your parking in ADVANCE via their website and use the code festigals16.

We’re looking forward to a great FestiGals weekend – Hope you are too!
