Al Parisi
Experience Manager

My mission is to create, collaborate, and orchestrate meaningful projects and events. My passion for working and playing at festivals and events has led me to my current role with The Workshop. I’m thrilled to be programming special projects with old and new associates at The Workshop; we have a fantastic team! Over the years, I’ve helped to produce large scale events, from street fairs to beer festivals to civic grand openings. I enjoy all aspects of event production especially when I get to be on the event site with our guests and event associates. I love the New Orleans music and culture and I take an annual spring pilgrimage to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. My festival play time continues in the summer at the Oregon Country Fair where I work on the Spoken Word crew and see dear friends around the campfire. My son Nick and daughter Angela grew up in the festival business and carry the festival family torch by continuing to work in the industry.
