Nothing says Christmas is just around the corner like the Shreveport Opera Guild’s Les Boutiques de Noel! The event, which is once again being held at the Shreveport Convention Center at 400 Caddo Street, opens Thursday, Nov. 18 and runs through Saturday, Nov. 20.

Especially exciting to us is the Boutiques’ free Downtown Lunch Trolley that will run Thursday and Friday. The trolley will pick up at multiple locations downtown and whisk shoppers to the convention center for free – they will also be giving free admission to lunch shoppers. Thank you, Boutiques!

But wait, there’s more! The Boutiques is also planning three other fun outing opportunities- the opening night Patron Party dedicated to long-time opera patron Delton Harrison. The party features food and beverage & a special performance by Maxfield Mayeaux, “Max on the Sax”. Cocktail attire requested, please. Argyle socks, optional.

A Friday Fun Night Shopping Experience that runs Friday night from 6:30- 9 pm. This gives exclusive shopping access, Happy Hour with a free specialty cocktail, cash bar until 9:00 pm, & a charcuterie board demonstration by We Olive.

On Saturday, Nov. 20, they will have a Kid’s Event with Santa – in conjunction with Sci-Port featuring  donuts and hot chocolate, a scavenger Hunt, & Sci-Port Christmas Activity. The event is $20 per child, but it includes a one-day adult shopping pass.
