Magic in Melpomenia is an annual event that benefits the revitalization of the Lower St. Charles Corridor, a historic, high-ground neighborhood with a variety of residential and commercial buildings, next to the downtown arts district and across from the Lower Garden District. Join some of New Orleans’s top players in historic preservation and neighborhood revitalization for a celebration at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center. The event will feature live music by Richard Knox and Rob Schafer, and food will be provided by a variety of local vendors, including Back to the Garden, Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro, Crabby Jack’s, Fat Harry’s, Honey Baked Ham, Houston’s, La Divina Gelateria, Lilly’s Café, The Irish House, St. Arnold Brewery, and Whole Foods. With the help of our guests, Felicity Redevelopment, Inc. will continue to rebuild and repopulate Melpomenia!
The goal of Felicity Redevelopment, Inc. is the revitalization of the Lower St. Charles Corridor neighborhood, the area bounded by St. Charles Avenue, Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, Calliope Street, and Jackson Avenue. Once a vital part of New Orleans life, the area contains splendid residential and commercial buildings that are waiting to be reclaimed and provide housing and commercial space for the re-population of the neighborhood.
