The level of activity in New Orleans this weekend proves there's never an off-season for attractions drawing tourists to the Crescent City. Catch popular blues, soul, and rock guitarist Marc Stone on Thursday, June 6, at the Ogden After Hours Series hosted in one of the city's finest museums. Stone brings his acoustic and slide guitar set to the Ogden, accompanied by pianist Joshua Paxton.

The weekend keeps hopping with the French Market Creole Tomato Festival, held simultaneously with and adjacent to the Cajun-Zydeco Festival at the Old U.S. Mint on Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9. Chefs will be creating tomato-based magic in the French Market, and offering samples while the strains of BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet  and other popular Cajun bands provide a soundtrack to those inclined to cut a rug.
