As one of the most festive cities around, New Orleans is home to some of the best festivals in the US. And NOLA certainly knows how to let the good times roll—laissez les bons temps rouler! Residents and tourists alike don purple, green, and gold in celebration of Mardi Gras. There’s great fun to be had by everyone, but for those looking for more adulterated fun, head to Bourbon Street for your festivities. Aside from being notoriously known for Mardi Gras, NOLA offers world-class jazz music at the iconic New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Rich in rhythm and history, this jazz fest is the epitome of the NOLA experience. Taking you further in time, the French Quarter Festival gives you a history lesson worth remembering as you’re immersed in NOLA culture. Hungry? Check out the Oyster Festival, a local fan favorite. Southern Decadence, Satchmo SummerFest, Essence Music Festival, and Voodoo Experience are all also great can’t-miss festivals. Whether you’re a longtime resident of the Big Easy, or just a visitor looking for some fun, there’s always something worth celebrating in NOLA.
