****2020 Threadhead Thursday and Threadhead Patry Update 3/19/20****
With the announcement this week that the 2020 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is being postponed until the Fall of this year, the time has come, sadly, to let you all know that Threadhead Thursday, originally scheduled for Thursday, April 23rd, and the Threadhead Patry, originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 28th, will not be held on those dates.
We are hopeful that we can reschedule the Patry, and possibly Threadhead Thursday, to the Fall, around the time of the rescheduled Jazz Fest.
We will be contacting Foundation members who purchased Patry tickets through our pre-sale or who received Patry tickets through their membership to determine next steps with regard to their tickets.
Additionally, the Board has also decided to postpone our annual fund-raising Raffle, which we plan to reschedule prior to the occurrence of Jazz Fest in the Fall.
We know many of you are looking for ways to help the New Orleans musical and artistic communities during these difficult times. Please know that we at the Foundation are in the process of assessing the best and most effective ways to support our musicians, artists, culture bearers and gig workers. We will provide more information about our aid initiatives as it becomes available.
Please follow this page for further updates, and thank you for your continued support of the Threadhead Cultural Foundation.
****Patry Ticket Sales Update 3/16/20****
Since our last update on March 12th, the Foundation Board has been weighing various options for this year’s Patry. We will need to continue to delay Patry general ticket sales until we have more information to share with you.
Please follow this page for further updates, and thank you for your continued patience and support.
****Patry Ticket Sale Update 3/12/20****
Due to uncertainty around the rapidly evolving COVID 19 situation and its potential to impact large-scale events, we have decided to delay general ticket sales for the 2020 Threadhead Patry for the time being.
We will be assessing the status of local event cancellations, restrictions on gatherings and governmental directives over the weekend and will provide an update no later than Monday, March 16th.
THE EARLIEST DATE FOR THREADHEAD PATRY GENERAL TICKET SALES IS TUESDAY, MARCH 17TH, BUT GIVEN THE FLUID NATURE OF THE COVID 19 SITUATION, THAT DATE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
Please follow this page for further updates, and thank you for your patience as we navigate this situation.
