The Po-Boy Preservation Festival
This uniqe festival is on November 20th and we encourage you to bring your appetite. In New Orleans the classic sandwich is the Po-Boy. Made with crisp, fresh French Bread and anything you want in the middle. The favorites are fried shrimp, fried oysters, fried catfish, roast beef with lots of gravy, and ham and cheese. It is held uptown on Oak Street at South Carrollton. Besides Po-Boys from restaurants all over New Orleans, the festival will feature 2 stages with live music, arts & crafts, a silent auction, a children’s section with games & prizes. There is also an artists’ village where you can do all of your holiday shopping, and a history center where you can learn more about New Orleans’ most famous sandwich. Click here for more information
State Farm Bayou Classic
One of the biggest rivalries in college football is played out in the Superdome in New Orleans every Thanksgiving weekend. As great as the football game is, the Bayou Classic is much more than that. Other events include a battle of the bands and Greek show, and a huge fan rally with food and music. Click here if you’re looking for more to do after the game
