April 17, 11 a.m to 7 p.m.

Crawfest is an annual food and music festival put on by Tulane students for the students and the community, located throughout Tulane’s uptown campus. While the event is usually entirely in person, this year organizers will be adapting a hybrid approach to bring Crawfest back to campus after its cancellation last spring. The event is free to all Tulane students with a valid Splash ID, and food will be given out to all students while supplies last. Some musical performers include Galactic feat. Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph and Richard Rourke & The Voodoo Collective. Be sure to sign up for the event to enjoy delicious crawfish with friends while listening to these great artists! 

Diva Royale — Drag Queen Show — New Orleans French Quarter

April 11, 1:30 p.m. 

Looking to experience a bit of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” in real life? Look no further than shows put on by traveling company Diva Royale Restaurant. The show has arrived in New Orleans, and features a performance by a Host Diva Drag Queen and Guest Drag Queen Divas. Some famous faces like Madonna and Nicki Minaj might stop by, but the lineup changes from city to city. Although food is not currently served at the New Orleans venue, this show is still sure to impress. 

Awards Week Movie Nights

April 20-24, 7 p.m.

If you’re looking for a more low-key event on campus, the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life is hosting a weeklong movie marathon award show. Every night from April 20-24, a movie will be played in the LBC’s Pocket Park. “Promising Young Woman” and “Judas and the Black Messiah” are both in the line up. Make sure to reserve a ticket before going, and know that a reservation includes a table for two, granted your guest is a Tulane student with a valid Splash ID. Grab some food from the LBC and head outside to appreciate some films!
