New Orleans is so culturally rich that the whole of America can look bankrupt at times. Mardi Gras is quite literally only the tip of the iceberg, and nearly every week the city hosts a cultural event of some sort, be it a jazz fair or film festival. Pick a date - any date or season - and check the local listings. You'll have too much to choose from!

Hi Gabrielle! That is a great question but I fear I might run out of characters answering it. New Orleans has so much to offer all through out the year. Two imparticular are the Essence Music Festival, usually held in the first week of June. Also, the New Orleans Food and Wine Show which is usually held in the last week of May. I encourage you to go to the city CVB page and pencil some plans for next year's event.
