Magazine Street, New Orleans’ fastest growing shopping and entertainment district, is a six mile long stretch with a diverse array of businesses, shops, restaurants, galleries, and neighborhood residences. The Magazine Street Merchants Association is a coalition of business located on or near New Orleans’ Magazine Street corridor. The Association was founded to support businesses on Magazine Street, but has grown into an organization that works every day to promote Magazine Street as one of New Orleans’ most vibrant and valued business and cultural districts.

The MSMA produces three events per year: The Magazine Street Champagne Stroll in May, Art for Arts Sake in October, and Merriment on Magazine in December.
