New Orleans 2013 Fairs and Festivals

There's hardly a weekend in Louisiana when there isn't a festival to attend —and not a rinky-dink, one-band festival but multiple-day events, some with dozens of bands playing on several stages.

  Music is a common theme among the state's festivals, but most also focus on food made with indigenous ingredients — seafood, sweet potatoes, andouille, strawberries and more — and the area's arts and crafts.

  Louisianans also love their history, heroes, natural resources and the various groups of people who make up the state's cultural gumbo. All are celebrated with big parties and joie de vivre.

  Here is a calendar of fairs, festivals and celebrations around the state for the rest of the year. A few annual festivals have not set dates for their 2013 events; check their websites for more information.

March | April | May
June | July | August | September
October | November | December
