For those of you that attended White Linen Night on Julia Street, don’t wash your suits and dresses just yet. This Saturday, August 10, will be Dirty Linen Night on Royal Street in the French Quarter. Get ready for an edgier take on New Orleans‘ creativity, as galleries and street performers prepare for a most entertaining evening presentation.
Around 50 galleries and shops are expected to participate in the event, which will take place from 6 – 9 p.m. along the 200-1000 blocks of Royal Street. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy, as well as purchase, works by both esteemed and up-and-coming artists, including George Rodrigue (known for his “Blue Dog” paintings) and James Michalopoulos. Off Royal Street, the merchants of “Dutch Alley,” where Dumain Street and the Mississippi levee meet, will also welcome visitors into the late hours.
For those looking to cap their evenings with great food and drink, the multitude of French Quarter restaurants and bars will be open to cater to your every need.
Get ready to brave the late summer heat, and discover the street that has inspired Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams and countless other cultural connoisseurs.
