New Orleans and the Northshore in November 2019
November is here and fall is in full swing in New Orleans and southeast Louisiana, and with it comes those cool autumn breezes and the slight scent of a good gumbo. But the chilly weather and cozy comfort food is no reason to stay inside, there’s plenty to do. Here’s our list of the best things to do in New Orleans in November!
Treme Creole Gumbo Festival (November 16th and 17th)
We’ve said it once, we’ll say it again, when the weather drops below 70° in Louisiana, gumbo season has begun. And what better place for a taste test than the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival. Now it it’s 12th year, this festival celebrates that other New Orleans favorite, along with a showcase of Brass bands to celebrate the local favorite in style. Check out the link for more info.
Catch a New Orleans Pelicans Game (6 home games in November)
The 2019-2020 season is underway, and the Pels are off to a slow start.
