Fall Festivals

Come one, come all to fall in New Orleans

Fall in New Orleans means the temps and the humidity go down and the energy level in the city goes up. Now is the time to get out of the air-conditioning and onto a bike or walking path on the levee or in one of our many parks.  

Of course, the fall color that visitors come to see in New Orleans doesn’t come from the changing of the leaves – it comes for our colorful culture and the festivals that celebrate it. In fall, there's events like National Fried Chicken Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, Boudin, Bourbon, and Beer, and countless others. Of course, fall in NOLA also means Saints football.
