Poydras Home 1st Annual Holiday Tree Lighting & Music Festival

Thursday evening December 5, 2019

from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.


This year we are introducing a new event for Poydras Home residents, families supporters and the community, a Holiday Tree Lighting & Music Festival that evokes the magical memory of holiday seasons past.

Catch the spirit as Poydras Home brings back holiday traditions enjoyed by the young orphans who once lived at Poydras: Corinthian columns wrapped in green garlands, gaily decorated halls, “sing-a-longs,” and a “grand tree with twinkling lights.” The event will begin with a holiday-themed Patron Party in the 1857 Hall for our festival supporters followed by the celebratory outdoor Tree Lighting Ceremony & Music Festival for the residents, families, friends, patrons, and the community to enjoy!

In the coming weeks we will post more detailed information for this exciting new festival. We hope you’ll join us!
