Fests For­ward

Where New Orleans - - WHERE NOW -

That slurping sound ris­ing from the river­front June 3-4? That’s par­tic­i­pants in the New Or­leans Oys­ter Fes­ti­val’s an­nual eat­ing com­pe­ti­tion at Wold­en­berg Park (p. 45), where 20-plus restau­rants serve up bi­valve-based dishes while live bands per­form. More in a mater mood? Load up June 10-11 dur­ing the French Mar­ket Cre­ole Tomato Fes­ti­val (p. 44). Tomato ven­dors, food booths, cook­ing demos, mul­ti­ple mu­sic stages; did we men­tion the Bloody Mary Mar­ket? Bur­lesque, com­edy, va­ri­ety arts, sideshow and cir­cus acts—step right up, folks, and check out the Snake Oil Fes­ti­val at the Howlin’ Wolf (p. 48), where per­form­ers from across the na­tion fly their freak flags June 15-16. Ca­jun coun­try comes to town June 24-25 with a num­ber of the re­gion’s top mu­sic acts per­form­ing for free dur­ing the Lou­i­si­ana Ca­jun-Zy­deco Fes­ti­val at Arm­strong Park (p. 42). Rub­boards, ac­cor­dions, two-step danc­ing, Ca­jun cui­sine; that’s how you pass a good time!
