Cultural Festivals in New Orleans, LA
You'll find double the fun in New Orleans this month, as NOLA hosts two big events:
This year, the French Quarter Festival – the largest free music festival in the South – will be celebrating its 30th anniversary with more than 800 local musicians, free family events, a jazz brunch and fireworks over the Mississippi River.
April 26-May 5
At the end of the month, the New Orleans Fair Grounds hosts a celebration of the state's indigenous music, with Cajun, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, jazz, blues and country beats filling the air during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
