Celebrated since 1935, this annual, five-day event offers to anyone interested (or just a little curious), the opportunity to see the insides of the oldest and loveliest homes in the South. The event is usually held during April. Hostesses in antebellum dresses escort groups through private homes and provide historical information about each stately residence, including when they were built, who lived in them, and what action they may have seen. Other activities include balcony concerts in the French Quarter, a parade, and tours of plantation homes on River Road.
