Fidelity Bank’s white linen neighborhood party postponed
NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The New Orleans Arts District Association regrets to announce that at the urging of the city and in light of the upsurge in Covid cases, the Julia Street block party on August 7 for White Linen Night is postponed indefinitely. We will continue to monitor the number of cases and hope to postpone some time into October. Neighborhood galleries will be open for our regular first Saturday openings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., but each gallery’s opening hours may vary. We ask customers who wish to attend the vernissages to prepare for a controlled capacity in the galleries and mandatory masks at the entrance. The parallel CAC after-party, White Linen Night, After Dark is also postponed. They will also proceed to the regular opening of the gallery on the first Saturday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
“As we hoped to present this summer event that so many people look forward to, the safety of our galleries and their staff, event vendors and the people of New Orleans is of paramount importance. After receiving a note from the mayor’s office, we decided to postpone our block party until it was safer to hold such an event. We look forward to being able to present programming of this nature again soon. »Leslie-Claire Spillman, President (NOADA).
Announcements regarding future dates and times of the event will be available on their website www.artsdistrictneworleans.com and on social media.
