This Weekend in New Orleans: Comic Con, Krewe of Brewz, & More

Happy New Year to all in New Orleans! Party season is over now, right? Maybe for every other city in the States – but never New Orleans. Carnival season is right around the corner, and there are lots of awesome events this weekend for you to check out as well! 

Of course, the big news is the Tipper takeover coming to the Saenger Theatre this weekend. The British producer will bring three nights of IDM and ambient music to the French Quarter in a sold-out weekend.

In other weekend events, the Wizard World 2020 event returns to the Convention Center. Port Orleans Brewing Co. is gearing up for Mardi Gras with Krew of Brewz on Saturday, and a slew of unofficial Tipper afterparties are taking over the city on Sunday. 

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