NOLA is one of the most exciting cities on earth, and 2017 has the potential to be an exciting year. 2016 may have been super rough at times, but these few things New Orleans will offer throughout the upcoming months will definitely cheer us up. Happy 2017!

1. Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras may occur every year but definitely doesn’t get any less fun. With the horrid 2016 behind us, we can celebrate this Mardi-party in perfect New Orleans fashion. Cheers!

2. Wednesdays at the Square Concert Series

Every Wednesday from March to May, there are concerts in Lafayette Square. This is the perfect event for the music-lovers out there and is a great way to find out about local bands in all different genres of music.

3. New Restaurants

And we thought New Orleans food selection couldn’t get any better. Even more restaurants will be gracing us with their presence this year, making it easier than ever to break our health-related New Year’s resolutions.

4. NBA All Star Weekend

This year New Orleans was chosen to hold the NBA All Star Game, which includes multiple exciting events like the Dunk Contest, 3-point contest, the All Star Game, and - most importantly—a half-time show by John Legend. While it may not be super easy or cheap to get tickets to these events, the parties and liveliness that come along with having these events in NOLA are enough to look forward to on their own.

5. Crawfest and Jazz and Heritage Festival

While New Orleans has festivals basically every weekend, these two will inevitably make the top of the list as you end the school year. Fun festivals revolving entirely around music and food are exactly what we will need for the end-of-the-semester blues or mid-2017 pick-me-up.
