Mark your calendars and join us at the Spirit of the Vieux Carré Gala on Monday, November 6, 2023 at Arnaud’s. Stay tuned as we unveil all the exciting details of the evening!

This year, lovers of the French Quarter from all over the city showed up to protect the Vieux Carré Commission and the tout ensemble of this important neighborhood. This neighborhood is more than a place where people live, work, and play. The buildings of the French Quarter tell the stories of those who came before us. They showcase the amazing craftspeople and art of our past. They are the physical representation of our books, stories, tourism economy, and cultural heritage.

We would like to cordially invite you to join us at the Spirit of the Vieux Carré Gala on Monday, November 6th at Arnaud’s where we will show the Vieux Carré Commission and the entire French Quarter how much they mean to us. With your gracious support, we will continue to support the VCC and preserve this neighborhood so that it is always a source of inspiration for caretakers, neighbors, visitors, and future generations.
