Taste of Orleans
Enjoy tasty, regional, Cajun cuisine, such as chicken and sausage gumbo, Louisiana chicken wings, alligator chowder, catfish sliders, blackeye pea and kale hushpuppies, beignets, and more! Purchase a Tasting Card online or at the park for either six or nine tastings. Separate beer and wine tasting cards offer six sips.
Exciting live jazz and Cajun bands roam the festival throughout the day. Two alternating stages near Rue le Dodge and Flight Deck will feature live music from sun up to sun down.
Each night at 8:45 PM, the colorful festival closes with a themed firework show over the skies of Orleans Place, all set to Cajun music. It's the perfect way to end your day of Mardi Gras fun!
