The third annual Louis Armstrong’s Wonderful World Festival happens this Saturday (7/16) in its usual location of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens. It’s a day show, going from noon to 8 PM, with New Orleans legend Dr. John headlining. Right before him it’s New York funk/soul/jazz band Soulive, and before them it’s Kermit Ruffins, Folklore Urbano, Dahka Band and Samba New York. Tickets are available.

The festival will also have food vendors including Gorilla Cheese NYC, Andy’s Italian Ices, Luke’s Lobster, and Nuchas Empanadas, and there will be “Backyard Bash Activities” and family activities for festivalgoers too. Full schedule below.

For Dr. John, this festival is one of several upcoming dates including two more appearances in NYC. He plays the Last Waltz 40th Anniversary during the free Lincoln Center Out of Doors on August 6, and later that month he plays a show at City Winery (8/14). Tickets for that show are on sale now.
