The New Orleans Custom Knife Invitational will be held aboard the Creole Queen Paddlewheeler in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.

There are several hotel options in the French Quarter and near the venue. Most are within a short walking distance of 5 to 10 minutes. We strongly recommend booking a room well in advance, as New Orleans will be hosting Jazz Fest the same weekend as the knife show.

If you are unable to book a hotel in close proximity, travel by car should not be too challenging but plan for traffic accordingly.

The address of the venue is:

  • Creole Queen: 1 Poydras St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Hotels nearby (as a reminder, none of these hotels are affiliated with the show and the city has plenty of other options available.):

  • Harrahs Casino & Hotel: 228 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA, 70130
