2020 New Orleans Essence Festival Girls and Guys Trip

Sponsored by A Davis Travel

Travel Logo

Who wouldn't want to enjoy a fabulous Girls Trip to the Essence Festival? If you missed 2018 and 2019, look out for 2020. The 2020 Essence Festival will be held in New Orleans, LA. The Essence Festival has been hosted in New Orleans since 1994, and has been a positive event to showcase the beauty, wisdom, strength, and everything positive about African American women. 2020 will be the Essence Festival’s 26th year so amazing things will be happening. Please join my friends, family and I, as we partake this great experience together, and enjoy the culture, food, music, and all of the other wonderful things that New Orleans has to offer.

We decided to add "Dare 2 Care" to the title as we wanted to give back, therefore we decided to donate to a Non-Profit Organization. We are in the process of vetting them now.

I sold out quickly in the past years and anticipate selling out even quicker for 2020.
