Bernie Baxter RETURNS in 2023!

Bernie Baxter’s Traveling Sideshow is New Orleans’ oldest haunted attraction and the longest-running free haunt in the city. Since 2005 we’ve been scaring the city into a stupor and this year will be no exception.

This year, we are proud to bring a whole new show as we tell the story of Marni’s Marvels, the tale of a roadside attraction with a very dark secret: Its most popular product was made from the corpses of its least fortunate customers.

So come by and check out Marni’s little roadside shack. It’s got a lot of wonders for you to see. Just don’t stay too long, you may wind up becoming a part of the exhibit.

Planning on stopping by? Here’s what you need to know…


October 27 (Friday), 28 (Saturday) and 31 (Monday, Halloween). Doors open at 7 PM and stay open until 10 PM or until the last visitor leaves.

However, our yard display is up for the entire month of October, so feel free to drive by after dusk to see what ghouls are guarding the house this year!


You can find us at 44 Vivian Ct. New Orleans, LA 70131. We are located in Algiers, just a short drive from the Crescent City Connection. Map and directions below.


We are a FREE attraction, though we gladly accept donations. You can donate in person at the donation box or online
