September is a great month to be in New Orleans! Is is jam-packed with fun events and festivals. Below are some of our favorites, but be sure to check out our events calendar for all of September's action.
Shrimp & Petroleum Festival
This Labor Day weekend festival is held about an hour southwest of New Orleans in Morgan City, LA, and it is definitely well worth the drive! Bring the whole family and enjoy a full carnival, arts & crafts, a shrimp boat parade, a 5K, live music and so much more! It will be held September 1-5 and is FREE, but be sure to bring money for expenses like food, drink, and rides. We love this festival and think you will too! See you there!
Louisiana Seafood Festival
What does Louisiana know about seafood? Everything! And we will show you at the Louisiana Seafood Festival which will be held in City Park September 2-4. Boasting dishes by some of the most renowned Louisiana chefs and restaurants, prepare to have your palate pampered. Enjoy live music from top acts like The Village People, Blood, Sweat & Tears and many more! And if you are in the mood to shop, there will be an Art Village featuring unique gifts. Proceeds from this fun fest will benefit the Louisiana flood victims. We will see you there!
NOLA On Tap Beer Fest
Join 25,000+ beer lovers and enjoy over 400 different brands of beer at the NOLA On Tap Beer Fest. It will be held at City Park on September 24th. There will be live music all day (of course!) and scrumptious food from many of New Orleans top vendors. And proceeds benefit the Louisiana SPCA.
Fried Chicken Festival
New Orleans welcomes the Fried Chicken Festival! This will mark the first year of this festival dedicated to that classic Southern dish, fried chicken. And boy are we excited!
