NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Wanderful, the host of Wanderfest, the world’s first outdoor travel festival for women, released tickets for sale March 8. Hundreds of travel lovers from around the world will join together on the weekend of March 12-13, 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana to take part in a celebration of all things travel. From influential speakers to live musical performances, from a marketplace of women-owned travel businesses to excursions around town, Wanderfest aims to connect and inspire women around the world.
“Women are traveling the world more than ever before,” said Beth Santos, CEO and Founder of Wanderful, organizer of Wanderfest. “With Wanderfest, we’re creating a place where women can get motivated for their next journey, pick up valuable tips and tricks to use, and meet hundreds of other women just like them. It’s like a reunion with all your best travel buddies that you haven’t even met yet.”
Taking place at the Spanish Plaza at the Riverwalk, Wanderfest will feature a main stage with talks from top women travelers including Patricia Schultz, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and 1,000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die. A veteran travel journalist with 30 years of experience, she has written for guides such as Frommer’s and Berlitz and periodicals including The Wall Street Journal and Travel Weekly, where she is a contributing editor.
Among other speakers, Wanderfest will also highlight performances from emerging musical artists around the globe. The vendor marketplace will also showcase women-owned travel companies, products, and services that travelers can use for their next trip. Finally, Wanderfest will host the first-ever Wander Woman Parade with a New Orleans-style Second Line down the French Quarter to celebrate women and raise funds for a local charity.
