After last year, Louisiana folks are ready for anything to celebrate. In a state that has over 400 festivals and events each year, it was quite a shock to have virtually every single one of them shut down in 2020. But we haven't lost our mojo, and are looking forward to some of our favorites making a triumphant return in the upcoming months, even in a modified fashion. And I for one can't wait.

Even though there are festivals all over the state, it's always fun to take a quick trip down I-10 to the Big Easy for a day or weekend of fun. Below are some dates for upcoming festivals that have been scheduled, or re-scheduled for 2021 in New Orleans. Thanks to and for the info. But before you go, make sure you check with organizers or on social media to confirm that they will happen. If we've learned anything from last year, it's that things can change at the drop of a hat. Cheers to us having some fun in '21!
