In this episode we dive into the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in New Orleans. We cover the parades and block parties, but also explore the history of the Irish in New Orleans and why we celebrate this particular holiday with so much energy. As you’ll discover, the ‘real’ story is the impact of the Irish on New Orleans. Learn about the Irish influence on local government, architecture, banking, the port of New Orleans, the food, and more!
Beyond Bourbon Street is the podcast where we explore the food, music, places, people and events that make New Orleans unique. Whether you are planning a trip, currently living in New Orleans or simply wanting a taste of the Crescent City from wherever you are, you’ve come to the right place!
