This Weekend in New Orleans: Muses, Bacchus, Endymion and All The Balls & Shows To Go With It

It’s The big weekend! The weekend before Mardi Gras – where bedazzled shoes and purses fly through the air, family tailgates line the neutral grounds of Mid City, and everybody is celebrating. It may be the best weekend in New Orleans of the year. Here’s what’s going on. 

Muses, Bacchus, Thoth, Morpheus, and Endymion all roll this weekend. Between all the parading, the 26th annual ZOOLU Ball headlines the Metropolitan and Ohm Lounge with Tiësto, DJ Diesel, and Arty!

Big Freedia is hosting Freedia Gras at One-Eyed Jacks, the night after Naughty Professor performs with members of Griz’s band at the same venue.

And this is only a sliver of what’s happening in the city this weekend. Odds are you’ll end up stumbling into some wonderfully extravagant and unexpected party – and you won’t regret a thing. Laissez Les bons temps rouler!

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