Treasures From the Point is...
...an annual event in Algiers Point whereby over 90 families hold a neighborhood-wide porch sale, usually on the first Saturday in April. Please join us for New Orleans' largest community "garage sale."
Algiers Point is located right across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter in New Orleans. Take the Canal Street Ferry and stroll our magnolia-lined streets or take the Crescent City Connection Bridge and load your car with treasures. Either way, it is a lovely day you won't soon forget.
