Threadhead Thursday

Thursday, April 28, 2022   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.  2022 music line up featured Keith Burnstein and Corey Henry’s Treme Funktet. Sponsors of this concert in 2022 included Backbeat Foundation and the New Orleans Botanical Garden. 


Threadhead Patry

Tuesday, May 3, 2022   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 2023 Patry will be on Tuesday, April 2.

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 $130,000 dollars has been raised and distributed. The 2022 Online Spring Mini-Raffle raised $13,398!

Please see the dedicated Raffle website at for more information.
