After years of hosting New Orleans Wine and Food Experience (NOWFE) at the tail-end of May, the decades-old, multi-day wine and food extravaganza is moving to April 3 through 7 in 2019.
This is outstanding news since NOWFE has some outdoor components to it and the end of May is hot. The event usually kicks off with the Royal Street Stroll, which — in May — is a sweat and booze-filled jaunt from one wine and food booth to another down Royal Street, punctuated by visits into various air-conditioned art galleries.
Though NOWFE has not released the 2019 event line-up, last year saw the addition of some exclusive, high-end events like a visit to usually off-limits New Orleans wine cellars.
