Independence Day – July 4th

Cheers to a long weekend!  If you are still looking for plans this 4th of July, consider heading to the great city of NOLA.  With weather permitting, there will be fireworks on the river around 9 pm.  The best spots to view the fireworks can be found at Woldenberg Park, Crescent Park and Algiers Point.  While fireworks are the main attraction, there will be plenty of food, drinks and music to keep you entertained all weekend long.  For more information on Independence Day in NOLA, click here.


ESSENCE Festival – June 30th – July 3rd

R&B, jazz, blues… it wouldn’t be summer in New Orleans without a music festival!  The ESSENCE Festival is the nation’s premier showcase for African-American music and culture.  This year is proving to be more impressive than ever with headliners including Mariah Carey, Kendrick Lamar, Jeremih, Ciara and much more.  Information on where to get tickets can be found online.


Tales of the Cocktail – July 19th – July 24th

Tales of the Cocktail is the world’s premier cocktail festival and it’s obvious why!  The most respected bartenders and mixologists will be in New Orleans to create, exchange and taste different ideas/techniques from the cocktail world.  With 5 full days of boozy seminars, tasting and networking events, this is the perfect opportunity to catch a ride from Allure Transportation.


Festigals – July 28th – July 30th

Ladies – mark your calendars!  Festigals will be taking place later this month in New Orleans.  Created by women for women, Festigals is a weekend-long event dedicated to enriching the lives of women with a relaxing and festive NOLA experience.  Not only is Festigals a fun time, but special events throughout the weekend will donate 100% of proceeds to women’s causes.
