Festival Grounds - New Orleans City Park

Festival Grounds

The Festival Grounds include a 50-acre green space with lighted fields and ample area for portable restrooms. For most of the year, the grounds are open to the public for recreational use. Interested in booking a special event at the Festival Grounds? All event organizers must submit a Special Event Application for consideration. Events are not booked more than one year in advance, and we accept applications for new events February 1 – October 1. All events must pay a venue fee that is based on availability, impact on the park, and number of participants. You may put a “hold” on an event date for 30 days, after which a signed contract must be in place to guarantee the date.
