Mayor Cantrell: No large events or festivals in New Orleans until 2021

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell today said she does not expect any large events to take place in the city for the remainder of 2020.

While discussion has begun about how to re-start the economy and more normal activities when the coronavirus pandemic ends, the mayor said it is likely that a certain amount of social distancing will continue for some time, and she said that will have an impact on a lot of New Orleans events.

"My recommendation is absolutely no large events such as French Quarter Fest and Jazz Fest, even Essence Festival, as it relates to the year 2020," Cantrell said. "The focus should shift to 2021."

The mayor said she has spoken about it to organizers of some events, and said "from a collaborative manner, you'll see signs of change."
