New Orleans – 11/16
No place is quite like NOLA!
In our THIRD annual event in New Orleans, we will feature eight to ten unique homes across the Big Easy. A tour where you get to go inside these wacky and wonderful houses and meet their equally wacky and wonderful owners. The tour will be November 16th from 10am-5pm.
Going on the tour is EASY! Ticket buyers receive a guide to the homes with a map and addresses a week before the tour. On the day of the tour, simply go to any of the homes and check in at the front table to get your wristbands. After that, the tour is self-paced and self-driving so you can see the tour in whatever order you want! You set the itinerary!
Standard tickets are $30.00. VIP tickets are $45.00 which also gets you access to our VIP home. Kids thirteen and younger are free.
Nonprofit Partner – HousingNOLA
HousingNOLA is now a 10-year partnership between the community leaders, and dozens of public, private, and nonprofit organizations working to solve New Orleans’ affordable housing crisis. The data indicates the need for 33,600 additional affordable units in the city by 2025 and the data clearly shows that wages have not come close to mirroring the dramatic rise in housing costs. Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath destroyed over 275,000 homes and disrupted countless lives, but New Orleanians are resilient. For the 10 years immediately after the Hurricane, passionate citizens worked with non-profit, community-based organizations to rebuild their homes and regenerate their city in a more equitable fashion. New Orleans is evolving into a very different place from what it was before Katrina. Though its population is still below pre-Katrina levels, New Orleans is one of the fastest growing cities in America – according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Evidence shows the growing population is not just the result of returning residents, but an influx of college educated, young adults.
10% of all the ticket proceeds will go towards HousingNOLA and their fight for affordable housing.
