Your Favorite Holiday Party Just Got a Little More Festive

In a new holiday tradition, the Celebration in the Oaks Preview Party and Jingle Bells & Beer have been combined into one extra-festive event, held on Saturday, November 18.

The annual 21+ fundraiser in Carousel Gardens Amusement Park – featuring entertainment, rides, and all-you-can imbibe brew – now extends into the Botanical Garden for an elegant experience with specialty cocktails, delicious dishes, and a Walking Tour sneak peek.

“Jingle Bells & Beer was already one of the most-anticipated events of the year, so why not add more to the mix,” said Celebration in the Oaks Director Julie LaCour. “Joining forces with the Preview Party is really going to kick the holidays off in style.”

General admission tickets include unlimited beer, Amusement Park rides – including the iconic City Park Train – and snacks within the confines of Carousel Gardens. VIPs will be afforded access to the Botanical Garden featuring a full bar, 11 specialty cocktails, and food provided by Acme Oyster House, Casa Borrega, Gris-Gris and Saint John, Katie’s Restaurant and Bar, Legacy Kitchen, Rosemary & Roux, Sala NOLA, Short Stop Poboys, and more.

Additionally, for the first time ever, City Park Conservancy has partnered with Diamonds Direct for the Enchanted Engagement Raffle. For $50, entrants will have the opportunity to win a curated engagement experience for you and your loved one at Celebration in the Oaks complete with everything from the perfect ring to the perfect proposal. The winner will be drawn at the Preview Party.

City Park Conservancy’s annual operating budget is largely reliant on self-generated activities, often weather-dependent, and Celebration in the Oaks plays a key role in funding the Park’s continued maintenance and beauty each year. The public’s investment and attendance at Celebration in the Oaks supports City Park’s success going forward.
