Summer Fun in New Orleans

With long, warm days in NOLA on the horizon, we wanted to provide a snapshot of the many great events offering summer fun in New Orleans during the next few months. Spend your days basking in the sun near our rooftop pool, with poolside drink and food service available at Acqua Bella. Then head down to relax and rejuvenate at Spa Aria, a cozy retreat tucked within the exquisite Hotel Monteleone. If you really must head outside of the Hotel Monteleone doors, then we recommend the following events coming to the Big Easy this summer. Summer in New Orleans features a variety of exciting activities. Celebrate favorite Southern foods like fresh Gulf oysters or Creole tomatoes at festivals hosted in their honor. Participate in a running of the bulls, New Orleans style, as the Big Easy Roller Girls skate through the streets of the French Quarter dressed as bulls to re-create the famous Spanish festival. August offers an art-lovers delight as galleries and museums open up late for White Linen Night and Dirty Linen Night. These are just a few of the fun things to do this summer in New Orleans.   May 2014 May 31 – New Orleans Oyster Festival   June 2014 June 1- New Orleans Oyster Festival June 8-9 – French Market Creole Tomato Festival June 14-15 – Louisiana Cajun Zydeco Festival June 19-22 – FestiGals (taking place at the Hotel Monteleone)   July 2014 July 4 – Independence Day French Quarter Fireworks July 3-6 – Essence Music Festival July 11-14 – Bastille Day Fete July 12 – San Fermin en Nueva Orleans July 17-21 – Tales of...
