Catch some of the region's best music – including performers like Amanda Shaw, Deacon John, Rockin' Dopsie -- in free outdoor concerts hosted by Covington, Slidell and Mandeville. Sip wine and hear live music under the stars at Pontchartrain Vineyards' Jazz'n the Vines; in spring and fall, visit the Dew Drop, a virtually unchanged early jazz hall, for great music in an authentic 19th century setting, or dance the night away in nightspots like Ruby's Roadhouse in Mandeville and Wharton's in Covington. There's a vibrant fine arts scene on the Northshore, too, with numerous galleries, art walks, street parties and the popular Three Rivers Arts Festival, held each fall.
