SPRING FESTIVALS & EVENTS IN NEW ORLEANS 2020

Mardi Gras may be over, and New Years Eve just a fading memory, but there are still plenty of things to do in New Orleans.

March has St. Patrick's Day weekend ( a huge party in New Orleans ) and St Joseph's Day & Night ( very important to both the Sicilian community and the Mardi Gras Indians).  There's Easter Weekend, French Quarter Festival and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in April.  In May we have Bayou Boogaloo. June brings the New Orleans Oyster Festival and the Creole Tomato Festival.

French Quarter Festival 2020
April 16 - April 19

This four day long festival, also known as French Quarter Fest, has been heralded as the best free music festival in the south., featuring New Orleans' legendary music on more than 20 stages dotted around the picturesque Vieux Carre and along the banks of the Mississippi River in Woldenberg Park.

B&W Courtyards Bed & Breakfast is ideally located for French Quarter Fest.  We're just four blocks away from the nearest stages at the Old US Mint, and just a few blocks more to the French Market stages.

The music lineup will be announced February 4th.  Check back later for the details
