ASGNO Autism Festival.

The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans (ASGNO) will hold our annual Autism Festival on Saturday, April 2 from 10am – 1pm at the Westwego Farmers’ Market. The Festival is our main fundraiser and source of revenue that we use to offer services that empower, educate, and support our New Orleans Autism community.

It has been almost three years since we were able to hold our last Autism Festival and we are so very excited to get back into the swing of things! We’re looking for individuals and businesses to partner with us to make this Festival one that won’t be forgotten.

As of 2021, 1 in 44 children are diagnosed with Autism. So our annual Festival not only helps raise awareness about and acceptance of Autism, but it is our main fundraiser to support the Autism community in the Greater New Orleans.  To see our 2021 impact, click HERE.

About our fest.

Our Annual Autism Festival is an opportunity to meet new friends, network, connect with all the resources available in the greater New Orleans area, and have a fun-filled family day!

So come on out and celebrate with us and join in creating a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it.
