Christmas in the District

Why settle for the 12 days of Christmas when you can have 13?

NOLA ChristmasFest at Christmas in the District is 13 days of fun and holiday activities for all ages, including: Kids’ crafts, inflatables, and a petting zoo in Santa’s Playland; appearances and pictures with Santa, Mr. Bingle and other holiday characters; a Pajama Party with Santa; Meet & Greet Parties with the Ice Princesses, and an incredible concert by the Imagination Movers with exclusive meet and greet opportunities!

You’ll also discover more than 50 beautifully decorated Christmas trees, gingerbread house creations, cooking demonstrations and fabulous entertainment by Robin Barnes, Lena Prima, the 610 Stompers, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the Victory Belles and other New Orleans favorites.

If the weather outside is frightful, no matter: Our indoor venue at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will keep you cozy and comfortable throughout the duration of NOLA ChristmasFest!

Tickets are available on, and parking is easy as sugarplum pie with discounted rates available at the Fulton Street garage.
