New Orleans Events and Tickets

New Orleans is host to some of the best music festivals and carnivals in the United States and, arguably, the world. Mardi Gras, of course, is a stand out, but there is also: Jazz Fest; The Satchmo Summer Fest; the Essence Music Festival; The Ponderosa Stomp; The Voodoo Music Experience, and much more. Not to mention holiday cheer to spare – Christmas Eve Bonfires; fun-filled Easter Parades; and Halloween spooks (after all, they say New Orleans is one of America’s most haunted cities). The list goes on an on: entire festivals dedicated to writers; weekends dedicated to food and wine; skies open for fireworks – January through December, there is always something going on.
