The Jefferson Convention and Visitors Bureau is staging its fourth Family Gras and announced the musical lineup for the three-day event Feb. 25-27. Musical acts range from local favorites to national acts covering genres ranging from country to rock to dance music and pop. The festival started in 2007 as a way to draw families to Jefferson Parish for a safe, all-ages celebration of the Carnival season.
There are some new features this year. A Jester’s Kid’s Tent will offer activities for youngsters, and in another tent former WDSU-TV anchor Kriss Fairbairn will interview performers. One of the biggest changes at the free festival is an option for attendees to buy a $99 Royal Pass (purchase through Ticketmaster) that gives them access to backstage hospitality areas as well as special viewing areas at the front of the stage.
The 20-act schedule:
Friday, Feb. 25: Amanda Shaw and Little Big Town
Saturday, Feb. 26: The Vettes, Darryl Worley, Sister Hazel, Tito Jackson, Natasha Bedingfield, Liquid Peace Revolution, Nathan Michael & the Chris Gray Band, Happy Jack Frequency, Creole String Beans, Ingram Hill, The Iguanas
Other features of the festival include food and drink options and an art walk.
