New Orleans knows how to throw a party and the Whitney White Linen Night, held the first Saturday in August, is one summer event you won’t want to miss. The Warehouse Arts District, the “SoHo of the South”, will play host to the three-hour block party on Saturday, August 4th from 6 to 9 pm. Julia Street will be closed-off at the 300 to 700 blocks to make way for the live music, food vendors and more.
The event is free so come on out and tour the art galleries and boutiques along Julia Street. Later that night the Contemporary Arts Center will host the annual White Linen Night Party, there will be an admission charge for this event.
Don’t forget to partake in New Orleans tradition and wear your summer whites. I’ll be out in my white linen so look for photos on my Facebook and Twitter accounts.
