What is White Linen Night?
Sponsored by Whitney Bank, White Linen Night is the Arts District’s big summer bash. The event closes down the 300-700 blocks of Julia Street for visitors to explore the galleries, grab a bite from dozens of food vendors, and catch a full line-up of live music.
No need to venture inside a bar for a drink – there are also plenty of convenient kiosks set up along the pavement. You can sample some of New Orleans’ finest food and beverages from raved-about businesses like Brat’z Yall, Pizza Dominica, and Cru. With the best restaurants and bars in the city setting up for this special event, White Linen Night has your meal covered.
See New Orleans’ Art Scene on Display
The biggest draw of this trendy event in the Arts District is the dozens of galleries participating. These jaw-dropping spaces will keep their doors open late for you to explore.
Take in all of the dazzling exhibits and showcases on Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 5:30 to 9:30 pm. And there are plenty of afterparty events to keep the festivities going.
Be sure to head to the Contemporary Arts Center for their annual White Linen Night “After Dark” party immediately after the shindig. You can see the Arts Center’s stunning exhibitions and enjoy a night of dining, dancing, and fun.
