We are still reeling from our official launch party on Thursday night!

For the Very Local New Orleans staff, it meant everything to meet and connect with so many of you there in a space filled with positive vibes, hot beats and a joy that comes from knowing what it means to truly love New Orleans.

Being able to see your smiling faces, to check out y’all’s dance moves,to  hear all the “congratulations” and kind words about the party, and of course, to bounce to Big Freedia and with y’all made us even more excited and committed to bringing you the best of New Orleans’ entertainment and culture.

We just want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for coming out and celebrating with us and being a part of the start of what will be an ongoing celebration of our city and her people, Very Local New Orleans!

We shared some of our favorite photos from the event, and now we are sharing some of yours! Have photos or videos, you’d like us to feature from our launch party? Tag us on Facebook or Instagram at @verylocalnola!
