Where's Waldo in New Orleans

Find Waldo
New Orleans


Where's Waldo? It’s no surprise that Waldo has chosen to hang out in his favorite shops in New Orleans for this Scavenger Hunt in July! The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed spectacles is hidding out in 22 independent local shops.

Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

If you wish to participate can drop by any of the businesses listed below to pick up a “Find Waldo Local in New Orleans!” passport with the names of all the participating business.  Get your passport stamped/signed for each Waldo found starting July 1st.

The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped/signed at 10 or more sites can bring their passports to Garden District Book Shop to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps/signatures at 20 or more businesses will allow the lucky scavenger entry in a grand prize drawing at a special Waldo party at 6:00 p.m. on July 31. There is no charge to participate. And the scavenger hunt lasts for the entire month of July.
