This fall and Holiday Season, the Downtown Development District has many events and initiatives you or your business can support with a Sponsorship.

On Wednesday, October 18th, the newly renovated Audubon Aquarium will host the Downtown NOLA Awards.  The reimagined event will feature a cocktail reception, Honoree presentation, live music, and dancing, welcoming 300+ guests.

Sponsorship opportunities include the Cocktail Sponsorship, putting your name or logo on 1,000 cups used at each bar throughout the evening; the Guest Gift Sponsorship, which will include logo presence on a gift for each guest; and the Presenting Sponsorship, which includes speaking time and name presence associated with the event.

You can find all the benefits available for each level of sponsorship HERE.  Additionally, you can purchase sponsorship packages and individual tickets for the 2023 Downtown NOLA Awards HERE.

Beginning Tuesday, November 21st, Downtown will be lit up for the holidays.  In addition to the lights on the street, the DDD is partnering with local artists and Downtown businesses to create one-of-a-kind storefront window displays throughout the District.  You can be part of this exciting addition to Downtown holiday festivities and help make new destinations for those who hop between all the fanciful decorations at hotels, restaurants, and public spaces.

The DDD is again a sponsor for the Children’s Hospital Holiday Parade, and there will be a limited number of Downtown New Orleans-themed floats.  Each float will hold 20 riders, and custom DDD throws will be included.

You can learn about all the benefits and options for sponsoring DDD holiday activations HERE.
