Break out your favorite white linen clothing and beat the summer heat with live New Orleans music at the Whitney White Linen Night! Every summer, this event requires our city to dress in their brightest hue, creating a sea of peaceful white along Julia Street.

Sponsored by Whitney Bank, White Linen Night closes down the 300-600 blocks of Julia Street, with 3 stages of live music entertainment lining the streets. No need to venture inside a bar for a drink, because there are also plenty of convenient kiosks set up offering a variety of food and beverages from some of the best restaurants and bars in the city.

The other perk of holding this event in the trendy Warehouse District is that two dozen or so galleries in the area keep their doors open just for the event. Peruse the galleries all while sipping on a refreshing Mojito from a kiosk outside.

The block party is held Saturday, August 6, 2016, from 5:30-11:00pm, with the Contemporary Arts Center holding their annual Whitney White Linen Night party immediately after, also featuring live music, refreshments, and art work on display.

Don’t miss out on one of the highlights of summer in New Orleans – you’re guaranteed to have a lot of fun at this event, plus you’ll help support some of New Orleans’ most talented artists! It’s a classy night you won’t soon forget.
