A few New Orleans festivals and events on the calendar:
The music and the food will be flowing at the Gretna Heritage Festival, October 5-7, which will feature old-time favorite artists like Leon Russell, Foreigner and David Allen Coe, not to mention great local cuisine. It's just a ferry ride across the Mississippi from the French Quarter and has become one of the largest draws of the fall.
The following weekend you can rock and dine at the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival and the Louisiana Seafood Festival, October 12-14. One weekend, two incredible festivals. Laissez les bon temps rouler! Need we say more?
If you're into electronic/dance, Indie bands, Big Easy funk or mainstream sounds, the Voodoo Music Experience, held October 26-28, is for you. Rolling Stone called Voodoo Fest a "de facto benediction for the summer's epic festival season." Staged across the sprawling grounds of City Park on Halloween weekend, Voodoo Fest 2012 headliners include Neil Young, Green Day, and Jack White.
And of course we have football! The New Orleans Saints have a full lineup of home games at the Superdome. You can start with the home game versus San Diego on October 7 and then plan your weekends as the Saints take on Philadelphia on November 5; Atlanta on November 11; San Francisco on November 25 and more. You're sure to be cheering, "Who Dat!"
