About NOLA ChristmasFest

We invite everyone to join us in celebrating Christmas, New Orleans style!

NOLA ChristmasFest, formerly known as Christmas in the District, was launched in 2013 by the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center with the mission to increase demand for hotel rooms, restaurant covers and retail spending during the traditionally low tourism season between Christmas and the New Year. These goals are all about sustaining the city of New Orleans as one of the top ten holiday destination cities in the nation.

Several levels of partnership and sponsorship opportunities are available for NOLA ChristmasFest.
