White Linen Night, the downtown arts stroll in appropriate seasonal attire, returns Aug. 5.
The one-night festival of art openings, music, food and beverages will focus on the Warehouse District, primarily in the 300 to 600 blocks of Julia Street and 500 block of St. Joseph Street.
The street party, which traditionally draws several hundred participants mostly decked in white or light-colored togs, has a festive atmosphere. Vendors and other purveyors of refreshment help mitigate the seasonal temperatures.
Galleries and several of the nearby museums located in the downtown area present new exhibits and events.
The event is spearheaded by the Arts District New Orleans and is sponsored by Fidelity Bank.
