Hard to believe that JAMNOLA opened their doors just one year ago mid-pandemic! By bringing stories and culture of New Orleans to life, JAMNOLA has welcomed in guests – both locals and visitors – for an immersive tour experience. To celebrate their one year anniversary this week, you can join in on the fun by purchasing a ticket for the occasion on Thursday, October 7th.
Limited tickets are available, and your purchase will include a drink ticket as well as a special performance by Chief Monk Boudreaux with DJ Hollagraham. A portion of ticket sales will benefit the Music & Culture coalition of New Orleans & the Foundation for LA.
In creative partnership with Where Y’Art, JAMNOLA was founded by Jonny Liss and Chad Smith. JAMNOLA is New Orleans’ first experimental pop-up that takes audiences of all ages on a topsy-turvy stroll through some of the cultures that make our city so special. The immersive 12 room exhibit is 5,400 square feet of pure NOLA joy, celebrating the iconic art, music, food, and theatrics of the city, through the eyes of 20+ local artists.
Blinged-out umbrellas, giant crawfish, feather chandeliers, a sequined alligator, a virtual costume closet – JAMNOLA is best described as a visual love letter to New Orleans.
Since opening in August 2020, over 60,000 visitors from across the country have toured JAMNOLA to learn about New Orleans’ unique art, history, and culture. Their specialty is showcasing art created by the city’s local culture bearers. Not only that, but they’ve also raised over $20,000 for local nonprofits, including Feed the Second Line, New Orleans Musicians Clinic, Roots of Music, and House of Tulip.
