Our annual family-friendly festival will feature great music, presentations by artists, guided walks in the woods with scientists, hands-on art activities for kids of all ages, a silent auction, and local food and drink. Now in its twelfth year, FORESTival provides a rare opportunity to enjoy the lush grounds at A Studio in the Woods – eight acres of bottomland hardwood forest that feel a world away while still being within the New Orleans city limits.
