Spirit Of The Vieux Carré Patron Party And Gala
Join us at Broussard’s with Sweet Crude and the NOCCA Alumni Trio. The Vieux Carré Commission Foundation and Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts look forward to welcoming you to Broussard’s, whose iconic courtyard embodies the French Quarter’s tout ensemble, its quaint and distinctive character and ambiance. Celebrate the Spirit of the Vieux Carré with a Patron Party on October 16 at 6 p.m. and the Gala at 7 p.m. Our architectural gems are both historic masterpieces and major drivers of culture and tourism. With your support, we will continue to expand and strengthen the VCC Foundation’s programming benefiting the craftsmen, caretakers, neighbors and visitors of the Vieux Carré as well as their direct support of the Vieux Carré Commission.

What To Expect
At the Gala, we’ll tip our hats to you for enabling us to work hard at developing educational programming, such as the “Quarterly Care Workshops” that provide hands-on demonstrations and resources to property owners and caretakers who are eager to delve into the nuts-and-bolts of architectural preservation.
Additionally, we’d like to share our pride in the Vieux Carré Virtual Library, which was recently honored with a Special Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation by Louisiana Landmarks Society. In December 2018, we announced the release of tens of thousands of archival documents, available for free-of-charge viewing at FrenchQuarter.nola.gov or VieuxCarre.nola.gov. Now, the Foundation is scanning and identifying the VCC’s countless historic photographs, to be added to the Virtual Library. Future endeavors include making each definition a searchable term and scanning property documents to make research and usability easier for everyone.
