Louis Armstrong


The Riverboat Louis Armstrong has arrived and is the most unique and versatile music and event venue the city of New Orleans has to offer. It’s one of the largest riverboats in the region with a current licensed capacity of 2,500 passengers. The Riverboat Louis Armstrong will make it’s home at the CanalPoydras Street dock and Mardi Gras World on the Mississippi River. 

As the number of New Orleanshotel rooms approaches 50,000 and the New Orleans Convention Center is within walking distance to the Riverboat Louis Armstrong, it is the perfect venue for conventioneers as well as leisure travelers, providing extraordinary experiences for great music, shows, weddings, receptions, meetings, and most importantly, large convention events. The Riverboat Louis Armstrong can accommo- date both large and small events, and features both local and national music talent. It can cruise the mighty Mississippi River or remain dockside

The name Louis Armstrong is synonymous with the history, music, soul and romance of the riverboat era. When Satchmo was in his teens (and too young to play in the music clubs in New Orleans), he would go to the Mississippi River with his trumpet, hop on one of the Streckfus Steamers as a deckhand, and scurry to sneak among the jazz musicians for a chance to play with them. The rest is history!
