City Park Drops "Thursdays at Twilight" Lineup


As Fest Season enters the final leg, New Orleans is looking ahead to the popular outdoor concerts that provide our weekly dose of live music. Today, City park dropped the lineup for their “Thursdays at Twilight” series. Bruce Daigrepont, John Boutté, and the Pfister Sisters are just a few of the familiar names on the roster.

 

From May 12th until August 25th, music will fill City Park’s Pavilion of the Two Sisters in the Botanical Garden every Thursday for the 6p.m. shows.

 

Unlike many other concerts-in-the-park, admission is not free. Each evening is 10 dollars, and the tickets are in high demand. So, organizers recommend advance purchase. Said purchase can be achieved by visiting NewOrleansCityPark.com, dialing (504) 483-9488, or by visiting at the Botanical Garden Gift Shop. 

 

No outside food or beverage is permitted, but both are available for purchase on site. The highlight of the drink menu is the signature mint julep.
