Convention Dates

The New Orleans Convention will be held at the Mariott Hotel on Canal Street from Monday 2nd June thru Sunday 8th June 2014. We have tried to come up with a schedule of events that the Worldwide Celtic family would enjoy and get a real taste of the flavor of New Orleans. We have worked out a deal with Hospitality Enterprises New Orleans to be the official tour company of the Convention which means that the New Orleans Celtic Supporters club will earn a small commission for every tour booked through them. This will go a long way to pay for the costs of putting on the Convention.
