Not just one night; Hot August Month debuts

Hot August Night is a valued tradition in the city of Hammond. However, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the DDD can not safely hold this event in the way that the public is used to experiencing it. The name “Hot August Night” alone would bring in a crowd too large for our staff to properly enforce social distancing and safety measures. Our first priority during this pandemic is to protect our community members and merchants. With that information in mind, the DDD will now hold a month-long event called “Hot August Month”.

Hot August Month will support and promote all participating merchants in #DowntownHammond for the entire month of August.

August 3-9: Culture & Creativity Week
Kick off the month by celebrating the arts! Museums, art galleries, and/or any merchants/organization that offer culturally and creatively enriching experiences will offer specials and discounts the entire week.Explore pop-up history exhibits, art & more. All ages can get creative on Saturday (8/5) at the Chalk Walk, partnered with the Hammond Regional Arts Center. A few participating locations are: Painting with a Twist, Hammond Historic District, Louisiana Children's Discovery Center, Columbia Theatre, etc.

August 10-16: Retail Therapy Week
Head Downtown for amazing sales, extended hours, & fun at your favorite shops & salons! Check out the sidewalk sale on Saturday, complete with sip & shop experiences and chances to win gift-cards & prizes.This means boutiques, salons, spas, barbershops, services, sales, gyms, and more! Examples: Downtown Yoga, Ruby, Bayou Booksellers, Salon Nuo Vo, NextHome Realty, Nortech, etc.

August 17-23: Food & Drink Week
For the first time, our restaurants & bars will feature special menus & pricing - this week only. This is your chance to try something new! On Saturday you can enjoy live music at your favorite spots, as well as enter to win gift-cards & prizes. Examples: Brady's, Red White & Brew, Courtyard Cafe, Cena, etc.
