NEW ORLEANS (press release) – After a long two-year hiatus, the Vieux Carre Property Owners, Residents and Associates are thrilled to announce that the 23rd Annual Mother’s Day Concert & Picnic has returned…with a twist!  Please join VCPORA and their Presenting Sponsor, Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company, at Cabrini Park on May 15.

Yes, that is a week after Mother’s Day…but this year, the last day of Jazz Fest falls on May 8, and VCPORA didn’t want you to have to make that tough choice! And it just so happens that May 15 is International Families Day – so bring Mom, and the whole family, along with your picnic basket, lawn chairs, and your dancing shoes to Cabrini Park for an afternoon of fun!

As always, we will be enjoying the sounds of American revivalist ensemble New Leviathan Oriental Foxtrot Orchestra Don’t forget the playground and face-painting for the kids. Interested in volunteering? Contact them at info@vcpora.org.

The 23rd Annual Mother’s Day Concert & Picnic is VCPORA’s gift to the community, with the generous sponsorship of Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company. This event is free and open to the public. Although we love them, please leave the pets at home. Please note that the park will be closed Sunday so that we may clean & set up for the event. Special thanks to NORDC, Harold’s Plants, NOPD Office of Police Secondary Employment, and you – our members!
