New Orleans, Louisiana, also known as the “Big Easy”, is famous for its 24/7 nightlife scene, vibrant live music and delicious food. Although any time is a great time to visit the city, this February and March are the best times to travel to New Orleans.

 

February

Although February is mostly known as the month of love, in New Orleans February is the month of partying. Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, is the biggest celebration and holiday in New Orleans. The holiday typically falls in February, but can fluctuate based on the calendar date.

 

The days leading up to the most special Tuesday of the year are filled with parades and more. Some of the can’t-miss experiences are Krewe du Vieux, Muses and Endymion. On Mardi Gras Day, try to catch a coveted Zulu coconut from the Krewe of Zulu or beads from Rex, the King of Carnival.

 

If Mardi Gras and the carnival season aren’t your scene, there are plenty of things to explore instead. The annual Tet Fest, which celebrates Vietnamese New Year, features traditional Vietnamese food, performances, music and activities.

 

February is also Black History Month and the city features tons of citywide events, performances, showcases and more all month long. Check out the New Orleans Black History Itinerary.

 

March

As the excitement from Mardi Gras dies down, the city prepares for its next big events: spring festivals. Throughout March, there will be local festivals throughout the city, making it the best month for travelers who want to experience local New Orleans culture.

One of March’s biggest celebrations is St. Patrick’s Day and New Orleans has plenty of activities to celebrate. Check out the Irish Channel Parade throughout the Lower Garden District, an annual event perfect for both locals and tourists alike.

 

Book lovers should check out the Tennessee Williams and Saints and Sinners literary festivals. Both will feature special activities, speakers, guest authors, book signings and more.
