Big Freedia and Big Tunes Are The Best Free Events This Weekend

Here are the best free events going on in New Orleans this weekend!

by Alex Galbraith | August 10, 2018

If you’re reading this, it’s too late to see the best free event the city had to offer this week. Tank & The Bangas performed on Thursday at the Aloft Hotel for the price of no dollars and if you weren’t there, we can’t help you. But you can dry your tears on the stacks of money you’ll save by only hitting up free events this weekend.

Check out a few of our favorites below.

Heatwave! 5th Anniversary Edition

Ann Glaviano has kept her Motown night and its safe dancefloor going in the city for half a decade. If New Orleans’ Heatwave nights were a child, they’d be in kindergarten right now. That has to be worth celebrating, right?

The ice cream is more-than-likely not free at this pop-up event by the oddball flavor originators at 7th Ward. There will be entertainment, though, and you should never turn down the opportunity to see a free show. Loren Farese, Jeremy Joyce, and Caitlin Hill will perform.
