About The Sideshow

Bernie Baxter’s traveling sideshow is an annual home haunt in the Algiers area. Every year, it’s staff continue to put on one of the area’s scariest haunted attractions for the unbeatable price of free.

Due to road construction, we were forced to close in 2019 and had to remain closed in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. However, we are making our grand return in 2022.

In 2018, despite only three nights of operation, over 1200 people came by to enjoy the show. This year, we are planning to outdo ourselves with a whole new attraction: Rotti’s Repossessions.

Bear in mind that the main haunt is not for children, though we will have a special area for kids and trick or treating on Halloween night. This includes a yard display and a 29-foot exit light tunnel.

So, if you’re feeling brave and don’t mind making your way through what is known as one of New Orleans’ scariest haunts, feel free to join us on one of our three nights. We hope that you have the guts to come by, though Rotti make see to it that you don’t have them much longer…
