Halloween In New Orleans – Vampire Ball

 “Some are born to Sweet Delight, Others are born to Endless Night.”

New Orleans has long been known as a premier destination for Halloween, due to the many exceptional events taking place in the city the entire week of the holiday.

One such spooky spectacular is the annual Endless Night Vampire Ball. The Ball has been held in New Orleans since 1998 and has grown more lavish each year.

The location is the famous House of Blues on Decatur street. As the dress code is strongly enforced, it is highly recommended that you read up on the dress requirements before attending the event.

Tickets may be purchased from the event site.

1896 O’Malley House still has limited room availability for Halloween week- contact us to book soon!
