CELEBRATION IN THE OAKS

BE A PART OF THE NEW ORLEANS HOLIDAY TRADITION

New Orleans City Park is as magical and unique as the city of New Orleans. The 1,300-acre outdoor oasis has enchanted New Orleanians since 1854, making it one of the nation’s oldest urban parks. The Park’s premier holiday event, Celebration in the Oaks, garners over 165,000 visitors from across the world celebrating what has become the New Orleans holiday family tradition. Become a sponsor and be one of our Merry Makers in bringing this incredible light show to life.

Why is Celebration in the Oaks important?
Due to COVID-19, this year is more important than ever. The Park generates 90% of its $17.5 million operating budget through activities in the Park, often weather dependent and now, predominantly closed with the restrictions set by governmental officials due to the pandemic. Celebration in the Oaks is one of those activities and makes up approximately 14% of the Park’s budget. The success of this event and your support are vital to the Park’s day-to-day operations.

New this year
The Driving Tour is back! This year’s event will encompass a 47 minute driving experience through City Park to provide a safe and socially distant event for everyone to enjoy. Extensive planning and COVID-19 safety precautions will make this experience functional, enjoyable, and memorable during a time of tremendous grief and uncertainty.

Thank you to our 2020 Celebraion in the Oaks Sponsors! Proceeds benefit the day-to-day maintenance and care of New Orleans City Park.
