November Festivals For You
It’s November and it’s finally starting to feel like fall in New Orleans. This is the time of year when some of the city’s most interesting fall outdoor festivals are starting to happen. Even though the temperatures are finally rather comfortable, November can also mean a lot of rain for us here in New Orleans. Alert Transportation can get you to your favorite November festivals dry and in comfort. Here are some events you may not want to miss:
Boudin, Bourbon & Beer
Bourbon & Beer 2019 is one of the most anticipated November events. Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s signature outdoor food and music festival kicks-off on Friday, November 8th, at Champions Square and features an expanded lineup of over 70 local and national chefs. One of the South’s top food and music festivals, the eighth annual Boudin, Bourbon & Beer will showcase award-winning chefs preparing their own creative styles of boudin sausage. Chef Emeril Lagasse, along with co-chairs Donald Link, Stephen Stryjewski and Aaron Sanchez will host this evening of food, music and philanthropy that puts Louisiana’s famous Cajun sausage in the spotlight.
Sleepy Hollow in the Garden
Don’t miss NOMA’s Sleepy Hollow in the garden through November 13th. This is an immersive outdoor production featuring Ichabod Crane and the infamous Headless Horseman. Sounds great? We thought so, too – and that’s what we intended for the audience. That is, until the cast and crew started to mysteriously disappear… Come enjoy this horrifically hilarious world premiere that is part American Classic, part The Play That Goes Wrong, and all kinds of absurd fun. Written by NOLA Project favorite Pete McElligott, this new telling is bound to leave you laughing your head off. Perhaps literally.
