What is it?
White Linen Night pays homage to the centuries-old New Orleans tradition of wearing white clothes while socializing outdoors in the summer heat. League City’s White Linen Night Artfest is all about celebrating the arts and history in League City’s Historic District. It's completely free, and open to people of all ages to come and enjoy art, food, and music. Wear your white linen and bring your friends and family for a fun evening of culture beneath League City's majestic oak trees.
What can I expect?
Art! There will be plenty of art, including live art demonstrations—including wood carving, pottery, and chalk art demos in League Park—live music, and more than 150 artist booths displaying and selling their work. There will also be a classic car show and historical markers telling the story of the Historic District. Kids will have plenty to do in the "Kid Zone" in League Park, including a bounce house, mini golf, face painting, chalk, bubbles, coloring, and hair tinsel.
Where do I park?
Parking will be available at three locations: League City Elementary (520 E. Walker St.), Citymark Church (231 W. Main St.), and the City Hall Municipal Complex (300 W. Walker St.). At Citymark and City Hall, there will be CCISD school buses shuttling people to the Historic District every 10 minutes for the duration of the event.
