French Quarter Festival Anesthesia Update Postponed Until April 22-24, 2022

AUGUST 13, 2021 – French Quarter Festivals, Inc. announced today the cancellation of the 2021 French Quarter Festival. The State of Louisiana and City of New Orleans is experiencing a precipitous rise in COVID cases. This public health crisis, coupled with vaccine mandate and new regulations for large gatherings issued by the City of New Orleans yesterday afternoon, have made it impossible for us to move forward with the French Quarter Festival Anesthesia Update planned for October 1-3. We are saddened to be faced with this reality but are optimistic that the event to be held April 22-24, 2022 will be worth the wait.
The 2022 French Quarter Festival Anesthesia Update will still be held at the historic Hotel Monteleone located in the heart of the French Quarter and we plan to host the same outstanding program we had planned to present this year.
Existing seminar registrations for the French Quarter Festival Anesthesia Update will automatically be carried forward. If you are unable to attend April 22-24, 2022 and would like a refund or credit for a future C&H Educational Systems seminar, please email and let us know. You may also apply your credit to our Wine Country Business of Anesthesia Update to be held January 10-13, 2022 in Sonoma, California.
Existing reservations at the Hotel Monteleone can be carried forward to the new seminar dates upon request. Please call the hotel directly at (504) 523-3341 to update your reservation. If you do not call the hotel to update your reservation today, it will be automatically cancelled.
Thank you for your continued support as we persevere in navigating COVID-19.
