Property Summary
The Annual New Orleans Daiquiri Festival celebrates Louisiana's most infamous drink: The Frozen Daiquiri. Hundreds of Daiquiri Shops can be found all throughout Louisiana, and New Orleans is the global destination where folks come to drive through one of our many Daiquiri Shops, or pick one up and walk through the city enjoying our unique open-container laws. The festival brings together soul food, live music, activities and of course, plenty of classic and innovative daiquiri flavors.
