Most of the time, we're not into social media holidays, but we'll make an exception for September. Who could pass up National Lazy Mom’s Day on September 6 or National Tailgating Day on September 7? There’s also National #TalkLikeAPirateDay on the 19th. We can’t think of a better day to have a Voodoo Daiquiri (a.k.a. The Purple Drank) at Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop.

Not into social media holidays? Here are five other ways you can celebrate September in NOLA.

1. Southern Decadence Festival, Aug. 29 - Sept. 2

Southern Decadence is held annually in New Orleans over Labor Day. More than 160,000 LGBTQ travelers and their friends come down for parades, block parties, gay history walking tours, drag shows and general revelry. 

2. Restaurant Week New Orleans, Sept. 12-18

Don’t miss Restaurant Week New Orleans. Participating restaurants will be offering a fixed price menu which will give customers the opportunity to save big on a two-course lunches and three-course dinners all over town. 

3. New Orleans Burlesque Festival, Sept. 12-15

Blaze Starr. Evangeline, the Oyster Girl. Lilly Christine, the Cat Girl. Aloutte LeBlanc, the Tassle Twirler. New Orleans has rich burlesque history and we celebrate it every September. 

4. National Fried Chicken Festival, Sept. 20-23

New Orleans’ Fried Chicken Festival had its inaugural year in 2016. It was such a huge success that, not only did they have to move to a larger venue last year – Woldenberg Park – they had to add another day two years in a row! Come eat all the chicken and fixings you want, and enjoy live entertainment on two stages. Events include a Fried Chicken Tenders Eating Contest and a Best Fried Chicken Contest.

5. NOLA on Tap Beer Fest, Sept. 21

Hoist a cold one or two at the NOLA On Tap Beer Festival in City Park, featuring 400 brews, authentic New Orleans food, and live music. Proceeds go to the Louisiana SPCA.
