French Quarter Festival question..

KateMW | Jun 28, 2009 10:55 AM

OK, so I'm planning my husband's 40th {39th} birthday party in New Orleans April 2011 {yes, I know I'm early!} and I just saw that the date that I picked is during FQF. How far in advance do restaurants and hotels book up for FQF? Is it as packed with tourists as JF is? I'm going to do his party at an event venue {Latrobe's on Royal}, not a restaurant, so I'm not worried about that. I'm just curious how far in advance I'll need to have people book their rooms and make any other reservations they might want to make for meals.

Also, is FQF fun? It sounds like a great time and something our friends will really enjoy. Is it a madhouse?
