New Orleans Festivals 2015, 2016

New Orleans Events are one of a kind as they are enriched from the city's history and culture. With its unique heritage, as it was found and ruled by the French, it remains one of the biggest destinations for tourism, conventions and festivals.

One of the biggest Festivals in New Orleans is Mardi Gras. Also known as Fat Tuesday, it occurs the day before Ash Wednesday. Thousands of people from around the world gather on Bourbon Street dressed up in colorful costumes and intricate masks dancing the night away. Marching bands and vibrant floats parade down the street as beaded necklaces are thrown from rooftops and balconies. There are huge dinner parties and balls where Kings and Queens of Mardi Gras are named. It is one of the largest celebrations of Mardi Gras in the world.

New Orleans Music Festivals occur for every season of the year. In spring there is the French Quarter Festival where the focus is on New Orleans' music and food. It offers over 20 performance stages and more than 90 food and beverage booths. Then in the summer there is the Essence Festival. It's a star-studded celebration of African American music and culture. In the Fall/Winter there is a Halloween-themed event called the Voodoo Music Experience. There are performances by high-profile artists like 50-cent and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There is a music event for music lovers of all kinds.

Though the city has been devastated through tragedy, like Hurricane Katrina, it still stands strong. Tourism is still at an all-time high with over 3 million visitors each year. Its Festivals are sure to be responsible as the city has proven to have something for everyone.
