September Events

Our top picks for this month’s events

Fried Chicken Festival

Now in its second year, the Fried Chicken Festival has expanded to a bigger location in Woldenberg Park on Sept. 23-24. There will be a fried chicken-tenders eating contest, a football lounge, a kids pavilion, cooking demos, desserts from Sucre and of course plenty of delicious fried chicken. Admission is free, but you pay for food. Information, FriedChickenFestival.com.

Krewes for Karnival Fundraiser

On Sept. 21, Fulton Alley is hosting the Krewes for Karnival’s First Responders Fundraiser. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 the day of the event. Attendees will enjoy bowling, food, drinks and live music. The “Krewe” is made up of other krewes, and the event benefits the firemen, policemen and paramedics who work so hard during Mardi Gras. Information, 501auctions.com/finkrewesforkarnival or lisajo@krewesforkarnival.com.

 Mark Twain Tonight!

On Sept. 15, screen and stage actor Hal Holbrook recreates the one-man show he starred in on Broadway as Mark Twain. He skewers politicians, journalists, and so-called patriots in a 90-minute monologue on slavery, religion and politics. The satire is mixed with comic tales of life on the Mississippi and a ghost story. Tickets and information, OrpheumNOLA.com.

NOLA on Tap

On Sept. 23, the largest beer fest in the region comes to the City Park Festival Grounds. There will be live music, and more than 400 brands of local, national, and home-brewed beer.  Dog lovers can bring their four-legged friends (it’s also a fundraiser for the Louisiana SPCA). $5 admission (beer tickets are separate). NOLAOnTap.org.
