Each year City Park and the The Marine Corps Band New Orleans put on a spectacular show on July 3rd on the Goldring/Woldenberg Great Lawn. This year's event will not dissapoint! Plus...fireworks from the top of the Peristyle.
Wear your red, white, and blue best and bring your chairs and blankets to enjoy patriotic music.
Arrive early to get a great spot on the lawn. The Marine Corps Band New Orleans will play patriotic music including the 1812 Overture, America the Beautiful, and other favorites.
The first 3000 guests can receive red, white, and blue glow necklaces.
Concessions will be available for purchase, see below for menu, or guests may bring their own picnic. The snoball stand will also be open with dozens of flavors and snoball flights, too. In an effort to minimize our environmental impact, New Orleans City Park will offer recycling and composting services at this event. Please help City Park reduce event waste by bringing refreshments and food in reusable containers, recycling plastic bottles, and aluminum cans and by composting food waste.
Due to large crowds and noise from the fireworks, we encourage you to leave your pets at home.
