You’ll Get A Kick Out of the New Orleans Burlesque Festival

August 12th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

New Orleans Burlesque Festival 2016The 8th annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival is a 3-day, international event of both classy and risqué performances in a challenge to crown the new “Queen of Burlesque.” September 15-18, 2016.

Burlesque and New Orleans’ French Quarter go hand in hand. Throughout the 40’s, 50’s, and 60s, New Orleans’ Bourbon Street had the largest concentration of burlesque clubs in the United States. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that a preeminent, international burlesque festival would be held here.

New Orleans Burlesque Festival features classic burlesque – not just dancers but also comic emcees, singers, and variety acts. This timeless combination of both the bawdy and the classy on stage in one show makes for some of the best adult entertainment you could ask for. In fact, the festival has played a big role in modern burlesque revival.

Explore U.S. History At The Cabildo

July 25th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

The Cabildo on Jackson Square in New Orleans French QuarterThe Cabildo, in New Orleans’ French Quarter, is one of the most historically significant buildings in the country. It was the seat of government in New Orleans during the Spanish colonial period, the Louisiana Purchase was signed here, and the Louisiana Supreme Court called it home for almost 50 years.

New Orleans simply oozes with history. It’s one of the 20 oldest cities in the United States, after all. You can hardly walk the streets of the Big Easy without running across something of historical interest. If that’s why you’re visiting the city in the first place, you could do a lot worse than starting at The Cabildo on Jackson Square in the French Quarter.

New Orleans Swamp Tour - Alligator sunning on a log

New Orleans’ reputation as a festival town is well deserved. We do have an awful lot of fun here! That’s not all New Orleans has to offer, however. After you’ve seen all the museums, shops, and parades, why not get back to nature with a New Orleans swamp tour!

It really can be difficult to see past the French Quarter and Bourbon Street when visiting New Orleans. What many people don’t realize is that the natural world is not that far away. If you’re not familiar with the bayou, visiting it can be just as vibrant and exciting as any Mardi Gras parade.

2016 New Orleans Bastille Day Fête

June 16th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

New Orleans Bastille Day Fête 2016Come celebrate French culture and history at the 2016 New Orleans Bastille Day Fête – July 15th, at the New Orleans Museum of Art!

Bastille Day – known as French National Day in France – is similar to the United States’ Independence Day in that it is a celebration of the 1789 storming of the Bastille, a large French fortress and prison in Paris. This act was the first step in France’s move towards democracy, not unlike America’s revolt against British rule in 1776.

New Orleans Bastille Day celebrations last a full week – July 9th to the 16th – and demonstrate the influence and connection the city has to French culture. The centerpiece of these events is the Bastille Day Fête at the New Orleans Museum of Art, a festival that has been called the “third best Bastille Day celebration in the world”!

Attend the New Orleans French Film Festival 2016

June 6th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

New Orleans French Film Festival 2016The New Orleans French Film Festival is an annual, seven-day long showcase of classic and contemporary French cinema presented in what is arguably the most French city in the United States – July 7th through the 14th, 2016.

New Orleans is a glorious amalgam of many cultures but one of the strongest threads, if not the strongest, is French in origin. From our city’s name – after the 17th century French Duke of Orléans – to one of our most popular neighborhoods – Le Vieux Carré, also known as the French Quarter – to the French infused cultures of both Cajun and Creole who are synonymous with the region, the Big Easy celebrates French culture in many ways.

New Orleans Pharmacy Museum
If you’re a fan of history, medicine, or just interesting collections of unusual and mildly creepy antiques, then a visit to the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is just what the doctor ordered!

You could be excused for thinking that a pharmacy museum sounds a little dull – but before you dismiss it, check out this quote from Rand McNally’s Best of the Road: “Almost every cobbled street in the Big Easy houses some eclectic museum or another, and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is one of the best.”
