Lark in the Park

March 14

We are proud to announce that the 2021 Lark in the Park fundraiser will focus on building City Park’s endowment for the future of New Orleans. It is time to ensure that future generations of people living in or visiting New Orleans can create memories that will live on forever.

This year’s landmark event, held on Sunday, March 14, 2021, will be reimagined and the first of its kind. Lark Picnic in the Park will provide a well-designed fundraiser and the opportunity to safely “Picnic with your Pod.”

The event will feature:

  • Two daytime seatings to limit the number of people
  • Personal picnic baskets
  • Strolling entertainment
  • And exclusive access to 13 picturesque, outdoor acres in the New Orleans Botanical Garden


Limited number of tickets available. Picnic pods cannot exceed 8 participants. 

If you are interested in supporting Lark Picnic in the Park by becoming a sponsor, please review the enclosed levels HERE. To ensure you receive all proper recognition in printed materials, please notify us by January 15, 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Special Events, Andrea Lockwood, by emailing or calling 504-483-9369. Be a part of this unforgettable opportunity to Celebrate your Park and your Past, Present, and Future Memories! We look forward to seeing you on March 14th!
