Mardi Gras and Beyond
New Orleans likes a party, evidenced by a year-round schedule of fun festivals. While the Big Easy is best known for Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, there's a festival for nearly everything, from cocktails to po' boys to zydeco. The popular four-day French Quarter Festival presents unlimited free music on various stages between Bourbon Street and the Mississippi River. We recommend going above and beyond to experience them all. Which festival will become your favorite?
