There's always something to celebrate, and Louisiana's cities and hamlets offer fairs and festivals spotlighting everything from meat pies and zydeco music to cook-offs and road races. Many are free or have low admission fees, and most are family friendly. There are four new festivals this year: Festival Bonfouca (March 18-20) in Slidell is a music and arts market modeled after Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo in New Orleans. In the Crescent City, there's an inaugural Brunch Fest (April 3), a bloody mary and music event; the New Orleans Poetry Festival (April 15-17), featuring national and international poets; and the NOLA Crawfish Fest (April 25-27), celebrating funk music, boiled crawfish and local beer. An added plus: Festivals are learning labs where you can absorb culture in its many aspects.
