Threadhead Thursday

Thursday, April 23, 2020  The inaugural Threadhead Thursday in April 2010 at City Park event saw hundreds of local residents and visitors to New Orleans enjoy a free concert under the stars of a beautiful night sky. We were pleased to again host this very special evening of music in 2020, following the opening “locals” day at Jazz Fest.  Come and enjoy a post fest evening of music in the beautiful City Park Botanical Gardens instead of waiting in traffic.  Lawn chairs, blankets and picnic baskets are welcome.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase.  This concert is presented with assistance from BMac’s Bar and New Orleans Botanical Garden.


Threadhead Patry

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 No, it’s not a typo…. it’s the hottest ticket in town during Jazz Fest! Held each year on the Tuesday between Jazz Fest weekends, the enormously popular Patry features a huge line-up of New Orleans musicians as well as cameos by various surprise guests. Generous sponsorship from businesses and individuals, together with much sought after raffle items, allows the Foundation to raise substantial sums for our programs. See the Patry page for more information.

The 16th Annual Threadhead Patry will be held on April 28, 2020 at Deutsches Haus.  Ticket sale dates to be announced.

Threadhead Charity Raffle

Each year since 2005, Threadheads have conducted a charity raffle to benefit various non-profit organizations and causes in New Orleans. The raffle was initiated as part of the give-back philosophy adopted by Threadheads in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and in the years since, over $117,000 dollars has been raised and distributed. The 2019 Raffle has over 200 prizes and raised $19,387. Please see the dedicated Raffle website at for more information.
