October 2013 = Unforgettable New Orleans Events and Activities

Although it’s still a few months away, autumn continues to be a favorite time to visit NOLA – most notably the month of October.  While much of the rest of the country is cooling down considerably, you can still enjoy temperatures in the 70’s to 80’s – perfect weather to explore our beautiful city!  And with all the goings-on, you’re guaranteed a great time during your October bed and breakfast getaway here at the Avenue Inn bed and breakfast!

October 3-5, 2013 – Ponderosa Stomp: Yet another amazing music event, this time celebrating the roots of American music.  Featuring 20 bands/artists – the best of the garage-born performers of both yesterday and today, talks on all manner of music history, record show, and the notorious Hip Drop DJ All-Night party!
October 5, 2013 – Art for Art’s Sake:  A fundraising event for the NOLA Contemporary Arts Center.  Exhibits and music will be featured at the CAC, and art establishments and restaurants will be open late in the Warehouse Arts District and on Magazine Street.
October 10-17, 2013 – New Orleans Film Festival:  A HUGE film event attracting attendees from all over the world!  Last year, 200 films were shown all over the city.  And you never know who you might find roaming the city, as this is a popular event for some well-known faces as well!
October 11-12, 2013 – Oktoberfest at the Deutsches Haus:  Celebrating the area’s German heritage with traditional music, dancing, and cuisine.  Gather for the parade kickoff and stay for the fun (and the beer)!  The event continues for three weekends, so you can be sure to experience the culture.
October 11-13, 2013 – Louisiana Seafood Festival:  The Gulf waters play a huge part in NOLA’s history and cuisine.  Why not come find out why?  Food vendors and demonstrations are the order of the event – and you get to enjoy all the benefits!  This free event also features local music as the perfect backdrop.
October 18-19, 2013 – Oktoberfest continues at the Deutsches Haus!
October 18-20, 2013 – Crescent City Blues and Barbeque Festival:  Come to Lafayette Square for the city’s signature music and amazing barbecue (and other food options) from both near and far.  More than 16 bands and artists are scheduled to play during the afternoons and into the evenings.
October 25-26, 2013 – Oktoberfest continues at the Deutsches Haus!
Late October, 2013 – Halloween:  It goes without saying that New Orleans is the PERFECT destination for the holiday!  With Halloween on Bourbon Street during the week leading up to the 31st, Molly’s at the Market Halloween Parade on THE day, not to mention the Cemetery Tours, Ghost Tours, and even the haunted locations around town that are open to the public!  This city is the perfect setting for your spooky fun!

And even though it technically happens AFTER October, we would be remiss to mention the NOLA Voodoo Music and Arts Festival happening November 1-3, 2013!  We’re not sure if the phrases “big names in music” and “sensory art experience” are strong enough descriptives for this unforgettable event.  The music lineup so far includes Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Calvin Harris, Paramore, Bassnectar, Afrojack, and more than (count them) SIXTY more musical acts!  And the nighttime interactive art experience will be one you won’t forget!  Tickets are selling fast, so reserve yours (and your room here at Avenue Inn) today!

Your room(s) await here at our historic bed and breakfast.  Our location is central to any event location, and the streetcar line is right outside our front door for easy transportation.  Welcome to October in New Orleans!
