Voodoo Experience in The Big Easy ... on Halloween. A great city for Halloween, but even better for a festival. Now in its 16th year, Voodoo Experience combines bohemian culture, arts and the types of cuisine that New Orleans is famous for. It's also commonly called The Voodoo Fest. The expected 2014 Voodoo Experience dates are Oct 31 - Nov. 2, in City Park in New Orleans.
