Winter Festivals

Winter in New Orleans offers its own wonderland

December, January and February in New Orleans means wonderful weather. Leave your coat at home and get down here.

The holidays in New Orleans are like nowhere else. We’d rather Christmas shop along the streetcar line than online any day. New Orleans holiday traditions include Cathedral concerts, bonfires on the bayou to guide Papa Noel, holiday cooking demonstrations, grand homes in their holiday finest, Reveillon dinners, New Year’s Eve in Jackson Square, and the Sugar Bowl in the Superdome.
