The end of summer…the beginning of fall…September in New Orleans brings a change in the weather and even more to do and see.
We’ve pulled together everything we love about September in the Big Easy for you below!
The New Orleans Saints are known for bringing the city alive. They’ve even been voted as one of the best teams to see play at home. They return to the Caesar’s Superdome for their first home game of the 2022 season on Sunday, September 18th against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With the storied history between these two teams as well as the excitement that football brings to Louisiana, this game will be a can’t miss experience for all fans. Experience the “Who Dat Nation” up-close in the Superdome or nearby at Champions Square. If you’re looking to enjoy other parts of the city during the game, visit Bayou Beer Garden or Mid-City Yacht Club, where you can enjoy local food and drinks.
While New Orleans is known for the French Quarter, its Spanish history is just as evident in the architecture throughout the city. Starting September 15th, New Orleans will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to honor its Spanish roots. Celebrate by booking a walking tour to see the beauty of the Spanish architecture, or visit a local Spanish restaurant. You won’t be disappointed at Costera, Barú Bistro & Tapas, Barcelona Tapas, or Lola’s.
Looking for a festival during your visit? Attend the Beignet Festival in New Orleans’ City Park on Saturday, September 24th. Find beignets of all types and other sweet treats to try, while listening to live music, enjoying savory foods, and browsing through their artist market.
Beignet Festival is a family-friendly atmosphere that gives its proceeds to programs benefiting children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. For more information about the fest, visit https://beignetfest.com/.
Music and More
No matter what your interests are, you’ll enjoy a visit to The Saenger Theater. Music lovers will delight in Earth, Wind, and Fire’s performance on September 20th as well as Diana Krall’s on September 23rd. Comedians are no stranger to the Saenger, and September will bring big names such as Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chris Rock.
New Oleans is also well known for its Burlesque shows. September brings the Burlesque Festival, beginning the 22nd and running through the 25th. House of Blues New Orleans will host this three-night festival featuring singing, dancing, and comedy acts. Time your visit well, and see the Queen of Burlesque crowned! The Burlesque Festival has been a favorite for locals since 2009, and this year’s acts will entertain adults from around the world.
