This holiday season, two of New Orleans’ popular holiday events will combine into one. The Celebration in the Oaks Preview Party and Jingle Bells & Beer combined into one big festive event to start the holiday season off. This is an event that is fun for the twenty-one and over crowd and is an annual fundraiser. Patrons will enjoy entertainment, rides, and all-you-can-imbibe brew in both the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park and the Botanical Garden.
“Jingle Bells & Beer was already one of the most-anticipated events of the year, so why not add more to the mix,” said Celebration in the Oaks Director Julie LaCour. “Joining forces with the Preview Party is really going to kick the holidays off in style.”
You get both the fun of the amusement park with the elegant experience of the garden. Your general admission ticket will include unlimited beer, Amusement Park rides – including the iconic City Park Train – and snacks within the confines of Carousel Gardens. If you will go VIP you will enjoy a full bar and food from Acme Oyster House, Casa Borrega, Gris-Gris and Saint John, Katie’s Restaurant and Bar, Legacy Kitchen, Rosemary & Roux, Sala NOLA, Short Stop Poboys, and more.
Come be a part of this celebration as it goes to a very good cause. City Park Conservancy’s annual operating budget is largely reliant on self-generated activities, often weather-dependent, and Celebration in the Oaks plays a key role in funding the Park’s continued maintenance and beauty each year. The public’s investment and attendance at Celebration in the Oaks supports City Park’s success going forward.
