New Orleans Festivals

Fall Festivals in New Orleans : September

The poster for the New Orleans Burlesque Festival

 

In New Orleans, fall, like spring, is festival season. After a long and hot summer, we are anxious to get outside and enjoy the weather as it turns crisp and cool . To take advantage of this temperate perfection while it lasts, we find  a reason to revel in Big Easy culture every weekend of the month.

This weekend, the New Orleans Museum of Art and its adjacent Sculpture Garden host Where Y’Art (September 7th). The evening will be enlivened by jazz music from saxophonist John Doheny, local restaurant fare from joints like Crepes a la Carte, Green To Go NOLA, and Woody’s Fish Tacos, and of course, art and art activities, all accessible with museum admission.

Next weekend, the Fourth Annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival (September 13th-15th), hosted by Harrah’s Casino and the House of Blues, presents enticing dancing talent from around the world, including renowned dancers of the past. In addition to performances, the festival will feature panels, workshops and the Queen of Burlesque competition.

The Charm of New Orleans City Park

Visiting New Orleans in the fall is a great time to take advantage of the outdoors and an opportunity to spend a day in City Park. The park is easily accessible from your Garden District Bed and Breakfast via the St. Charles Ave and Canal Street streetcars.

The first thing that you notice upon arriving at the park, are the tremendous live oaks, it is the largest collection in the world and they are just one element that lends to the park’s allure.  The park has so much to offer, there are pedal boats & even a gondola for rent to explore all the lagoons that meander through the park.  You can also rent bicycles if you would prefer wandering the green space by land. If you’re just looking to relax, there are also endless spots to lay down a blanket and have a picnic…eat, drink, read a book, take a nap, enjoy this massive outdoor oasis in the middle of an urban metropolis (one of the largest urban parks in the country).
