This is only for season ticket holders?

Would have preferred something in Champions Square (or even SKC) rather than a limited crowd at a restaurant.

I'm not sure. I know they're free for STH. They might be selling tickets to it for the general public. You can call the ticket office and ask I suppose.

I think It's going to look pretty awesome on National TV with everyone at Mannings wearing the free tshirt and celebrating when Zion's name is called. Champions Square and SKC are probably too big of venues for the actual attendance that would show up on a Thursday night and would look too bare.

i spoke to my rep and it sounds like inside at Mannings is for season ticket holders only, but outside in front of the restaurant and down Fulton Alley, it will be open to the public and they will have a stage set up. Should be an awesome night

Here’s the party info for the general public (via Facebook)

The New Orleans Pelicans are hosting their official draft party at Fulton Street Square on Thursday, June 20 beginning at 5:30 p.m. The 2019 Pelicans Draft Fest, which is free and open to the public, offers fans a unique opportunity to celebrate this historic moment as the Pelicans select the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

The first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative 2019 Pelicans Draft Fest T-shirt and other prize giveaways.

ESPN’s draft telecast will be aired live at the draft party. Additionally, Pelicans' radio broadcasters Sean Kelley and John DeShazier will be providing the latest draft news and updates from inside Manning’s restaurant.

2019 Pelicans Draft Fest will feature special performances from New Orleans’ own New Breed Brass Band and the Zion Harmonizers, along with appearances by the Pelicans Dance Team, Pierre the Pelican and the Pelicans Drum line.

Fans can also visit Pelicans.com for live reports from NBA Draft headquarters in Brooklyn, N.Y., and exclusive interviews with Pelicans front office executives from the Ochsner Sports Performance Center.

If you’re a STH and waited too long to claim tix, email your rep and see if they can email you a pair.

re: Free Draft Party At Mannings - Free Food & Beer.
FYI, I received this email this morning:

Thursday, June 20 @ 5pm

#1 Pick Should Occur Around 6:30pm

519 Fulton Street Square

We're looking forward to hosting you Thursday night for Draft Fest 2019. We're excited to celebrate the historic occasion with you, our Squad 6 members, as we continue to build a foundation for the future. A few things to remember:

?

Please bring your tickets (printed or mobile). Squad 6 Members will have access to Manning's starting @ 5pm, where you'll pick up your complimentary food and drinks before joining the party outside on Fulton Street. (The Squad 6 line for Manning's access will form on the Poydras Street side.) Please aim to be outside by 6:15pm as ESPN and other national media outlets go live to cover our historic #1 pick.

?

Fulton Street festivities will include a live draft show, performances by the New Breed Brass Band, Zion Harmonizers and Pelicans Drum Line, plus appearances by the Pelicans Dance Team and other special guests.

?

Free Pelicans Draft Fest 2019 t-shirts will be handed out to the first 2,000 fans in attendance.

?

The Pelicans Team Shop will be on the scene selling gear.

?

Squad 6 members who park at Harrah's Garage can save $20. Show your parking ticket at the Manning's Squad 6 check-in for validation. Please note that spots may be limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

Anyone got any idea on the best place to park around there? Thanks.

Find a meter and throw 6 bucks in it from 5-7pm. After 7 it's free. There's also Harrah's garage and a garage on Tchoupitoulas by Barcadia that's only a few minutes walking distance.

Whatever you do - try to avoid Convention Center Blvd. From Poydras to the Bridge, it is a nightmare any time of day, but particularly at rush hours. You will turn onto it by mistake and an hour later hate yourself. The convention center renovations have it down to one narrow lane that seems to never move.

Pelicans are suggesting people park at Casino Garage which is on Convention Center Blvd. Entrance is only a block off Poydras, so it might not take too long. But plan for major congestion if you go that way.

I’m about to close out my tab at Rusty Nail and walk over to the fest! I’m anticipating a line to get in Mannings. Also, there’s still a few free parking spots here if you don’t mind walking 10-15 mins.

So here’s the deal yall. Entrance gets you a food box with a jumbo pretzel, mini mufolotta, & mini burger and the typical Dixie wristband with 2 drink tags. Thankfully i have like 15 extra tags.
