Make it a Happy THIRD of July at City Park

City Park is celebrating Independence Day with a BANG!

Happy 3rd of July, one of the region’s hottest events, returns to the Goldring/Woldenberg Great Lawn on Wednesday, July 3. The festivities begin at 7:15pm with the national anthem, followed by a patriotic program featuring the Marine Forces Reserve Band. The evening culminates with fabulous fireworks atop the Peristyle at 9pm.

“New Orleans loves to gather and celebrate, and Happy 3rd of July provides a wonderful opportunity to do both,” said City Park Conservancy President and CEO Cara Lambright. “City Park is proud to host this annual event, and we’re incredibly honored so many choose to spend their holiday with us at our greenspace.”

Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs, and arrive early, to enjoy this free community event. Beer, hamburgers, hot dogs, soft drinks, water and wine will be available on site for purchase – Bonafried and La Cocinita food trucks will also be on hand. Friends of City Park Members enjoy exclusive access to City Putt restrooms for the number of individuals in membership level – proof of active membership required.

City Park Conservancy will once again offer sponsorship opportunities for groups and organizations. Packages include a 60’ x 28’ section of the Great Lawn’s VIP area (up to four people), complimentary beer and wine, food vouchers, indoor restroom access and more. To reserve your spot, email
