Boudin, Bourbon & Beer

As the name indicates, there will be tasty boudin and refreshing alcoholic beverages in Champions Square on Nov. 3. Attendees will also be able to sample some of America’s finest cigars in the Nat Sherman Cigar Tasting Tent. Last but not least, legendary chef Emeril Lagasse will be socializing with guests at the event. BoudinBourbonAndBeer.com.

 

Hell Yes Fest

If you’re looking for a laugh, celebrate New Orleans’ thriving comedy scene with Hell Yes Fest. It runs from Nov. 15-19 at various locations throughout New Orleans and features a mix of local and national comedians. There’s improv, sketch, stand-up, as well as surprise shows and different formats (film, podcasting, video games, etc.) along the way. HellYesFest.com.

 

Treme Creole Gumbo Festival

Local diners can find 12 different interpretations of gumbo in Armstrong Park from November 18-19. Aside from delicious gumbo, there will also be cooking demonstrations and panel discussions. The Trumpet Mafia will be one of many local bands providing music. TremeGumboFest.com.

 

Celebration in the Oaks

Celebrating its 31st anniversary, Celebration in the Oaks once again brings holiday cheer to the young, and young at heart. City Park will be aglow with creative lighting displays spread out over 25 acres. Don’t miss the Mr. Bingle statue and be sure to take a ride on the carousel and the train through the park.
