Food & Festivals
From the world class music to the spirited fairs and festivals, Louisiana has something for everyone. With more than 600 fairs and festivals, the cultural calendar is packed with exciting celebrations and there is sure to be something going on, whenever you choose to visit. The fabulous cuisine is an exquisite fusion of tastes from a diverse list of cultures. Louisianans cook from the heart – and create with their soul. This is obvious whether you are eating a sandwich in a café or a 5 course meal in a world-renowned restaurant. The very first cocktail was created in New Orleans, which is reflective of the carefree, party attitude. Sample a “Hurricane” cocktail at one of the many 24-hour bars!
