The Fiesta is held to help preserve and promote the cultural heritage and beauty of New Orleans. For guests and locals alike, the festival is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the architecture and historical significance of homes in the French Quarter. This year’s tours will include several homes that are not usually open to the public.

Two not-to-miss highlights of the annual festival are the parade of horse-drawn carriages through the French Quarter and the presentation of the Spring Fiesta Queen and her court in the historic Jackson Square.
