Seasonal Splendor: Falling for Autumn in New Orleans
Fall in New Orleans is always one of the best times to experience the city’s one-of-a-kind ambiance and unparalleled hospitality. The combination of cooler weather, tailgating traditions and free festivals make it the ideal season for a Big Easy escape.
At Art for Art’s Sake
on October 1, catch a glimpse of awe-inspiring art collections, from contemporary to classic, at more than 20 local museums and galleries throughout downtown. The annual event, which typically attracts more than 30,000 art lovers, also includes galleries, boutiques, antique and jewelry stores along Magazine Street.
If you’re craving something more than arts this autumn, visit New Orleans later in October for two of the city’s most renowned food festivals. On October 14-16, check out the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival
, where you’ll savor incredible barbecue and enjoy live music by some of the country’s most celebrated blues artists, including Taj Mahal, Cedric Burnside and Jon Cleary. Visit the following weekend on October 23 to take in the 10th annual Oak Street Po-Boy Festival
. A fest unlike any other, this event unites food lovers from near and far in celebration of one of New Orleans’ most distinct and delicious creations… the legendary po-boy sandwich.
At the end of October, as the city rolls further into fall, set your sights on one of the most haunted cities in America. Whether it’s a ghostly tour through the mysterious French Quarter or a visit to Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau’s tomb in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans is the perfect place to celebrate Halloween or experience the eerie mystique the city is known for year-round.
