This event is canceled for 2020**

The annual Happy 3rd of July event promises to be a spectacular show. Join us for the party dressed in your red, white, and blue best! Bring your chairs and blankets to enjoy patriotic music from The Marine Corps Band New Orleans on the Goldring/Woldenberg Great Lawn and fireworks from the top of the Peristyle. 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 you may bring your own picnic. The snoball stand will also be open with dozens of flavors and snoball flights, too. 

Due to large crowds and noise from the fireworks, we encourage you to leave your pets at home. 

In an effort to minimize our environmental impact, New Orleans City Park will offer recycling services at the Happy 3rd of July event. Please help City Park reduce event waste by bringing refreshments and food in reusable containers, recycling glass, plastic bottles, and aluminum cans and by composting food waste.
