Wear White This Memorial Day in New Orleans.

May 1 2019 | News

Memorial Day is the unofficial first day of summer. So put on all the white you want (including the powdered sugar kind you wear after eating beignets) and enjoy these two great festivals:

Greek Fest, May 23-26

Go to Greece this Memorial Day or the next best thing: Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Bayou St. John. Come out for live Greek music and dancing, authentic Greek food, Hellenic dance performances, cooking demonstrations and more. There’s even a toga contest so bring your bedroom sheets. Learn more.

2019 Tremé/7th Ward Arts & Culture Festival, May 25 & 26

Spend part of your 3-day weekend with Shannon Powell, James Andrews, Corey Henry & the Tremé Funktet, Jose Fermin & Merengue4-FOUR, Gina Brown & Anutha Level, and Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers! Along with a great music lineup, highlights include neighborhood tours and seminars. There's also the T7 Baby Doll Bar Crawl with stops including Bullets Sports Bar, Seal's Class Act, Kermit's Mother-in-Law Lounge, Lil People's Place and Candlelight Lounge.
