This Weekend in New Orleans: Hogs For the Cause, Art in Bloom, and Poolside Techno

We have quite the week(end) ahead of us New Orleans! There are two festivals this weekend, NOMA’s debuting their Spring exhibit, and all the disco booty shaking you can manage! Hogs for the Cause and Congo Square Rhythm Festival are holding down 2 days of funk, BBQ, tradition, and most importantly: amazing food & music.

New Orleans Museum of Art will have their Spring Exhibit “Art in Bloom” on display over the weekend. Also, there are several disco events going on this weekend — as well as New Orleans’ grimiest pajama party. 

Crawfish boils galore and great music await you! Check out our handy guide for all of your favorite (and eclectic) events going on in the Crescent City.
