New Orleans Arts District Association Answers Demand for Spring Festival Equal to White Linen Night: Jammin On Julia'
Festival is a fundraiser for the New Orleans Arts District Association

New Orleans, LA (March 21, 2012) - The New Orleans Arts District Association (NOAD) started the now legendary White Linen Night in the summer of 1994 as a way to bring the crowds back to the Downtown Arts District galleries during the slow summer months. This event proved so popular, Jammin' on Julia was created for the spring, and became a street party in 2006.

Says Jean Bragg, Treasurer of the New Orleans Arts District, "We wanted to kick off the spring festival season with a street party to equall our popular Whitney White Linen Night. This year's exciting multi-media production of Jammin' On Julia - Social a Go-Go - will be presented by the Downtown Development District (DDD) in the 300-600 blocks of Julia Street. This is the New Orleans Arts District's only fundraiser for the year to promote the Arts District and its vibrant, world-class art scene."

NOAD gave Cathedral Creative Studios the opportunity to produce this festival, and they plan to make it a bigger event - extending the festival six hours, and closing off the street for a block party. With two stages, the music lineup features: Terrance Simien, Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs, The Marc Stone Band, Royal Teeth, The Tin Men, Luke Wilson King, Chegadao, J. the Savage, African Brass, and more. In addition to the expanding list of music acts and galleries on Julia Street showing art, there will be numerous food vendors, two full bars and beer tents, the artist vendors at festival will focus specifically on the emerging fashion industry here in New Orleans. Says Loc Pham, Creative Director at Cathedral Creative Studios. There will also be cocktail demonstration/presentations including food historian Elizabeth Pearce's "History in a Glass: The Story of New Orleans in the Sazerac." Other activities include children's events provided by the Louisiana Children's Museum and Southern Food & Beverage Museum, making Jammin' on Julia a tremendous family event.

Jammin' on Julia - Social a Go-Go! is a festival presented by the Downtown Development District and Cathedral Creative Studios, as a fundraiser for the New Orleans Arts District Association (NOAD). The purpose is to raise money for NOAD, a non-profit, volunteer-run organization whose mission is to promote the city as a visual arts destination; all profits will go to NOAD. The goal of this festival is to bring together New Orleans' finest musicians, artists, cuisine, and fashion designers to create a social media festival that engages the entire city. The free festival runs from Noon - 9pm, with an after party at Cathedral Creative Studios from 9pm - 12am. For updated information: http://www.jamminonjulia.net/ and www.facebook.com/JamminOnJulia
