This Weekend in New Orleans: Wing Wars, Creole Gumbo Fest, Fete Des Fromages, & Bar Crawls

Happy beginning of winter, New Orleans! I suppose we’re just skipping fall and going straight for wet and freezing. Such is November in the swamps, I suppose. 

Despite the cold, we’re still hot with events this weekend! The Annual Hell Yes Comedy Fest returns to the city throughout the weekend, as does the Creole Gumbo Festival and Nola Wing Wars.

For this weekend’s musical acts, Thievery Corporation returns to NOLA with a performance at the House of Blues. Mersiv hits the Republic on Saturday, and BROCKHAMPTON closes out the weekend with a Sunday night performance at the Fillmore.

Check out these & all our other picks from this weekend in New Orleans:
