      New Orleans, LA

The new Frenchmen Art Market is a great addition to the nightlife of Frenchmen Street and offers a unique outlet for local artists to connect with both tourists and locals alike. The response from both neighborhood locals as well as tourists has been overwhelmingly positive, and we hope that the New Orleans City Council will agree and allow us to make the Frenchmen Art Market a permanent event!

The Frenchmen Art Market currently takes place Thursdays through Sundays, 7pm til 1am. Sign your name to show your support for its continued existence!

      COMMUNITY!! Frenchmen Street is one of the big reasons I'm planning to make New Orleans my home soon. The atmosphere at the Art Market is what gave me a real sense of belonging and COMMUNITY the moment I set foot there! It's a very important part of that community!!

      I travel to New Orleans often, and as an artist, I would love to see this development thrive.

      Because it is a wonderful place for artists to share their work and for city people and tourist to see and buy.
