Okay, this one’s the big enchilada. New Orleans is literally called the Birthplace of Jazz. To say nothing of the New Orleans Jazz Fest would be a shame. Dive headfirst into a gathering that combines the fervor of gospel hymns with the joy of local jazz parades. Iconic artists from all over the world come here to perform and celebrate in a wonderful display of vivacious culture.
This year marks the 300th anniversary of the city of New Orleans and the 49th year anniversary of the Annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Even the brightest stars know this is the place to be. Whether this is your very first jazz festival or you’re a regular visitor, there’s something undeniably special about this event. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your experience.
Pick Your Weekend
First, pick your weekend. For example, Sting, Jimmy Buffett, and Aretha Franklin are headlining the upcoming event from April 27-29 and Lionel Richie, Beck, Aerosmith, and Jack White will headline the following weekend from May 3-6. If you can brave the crowds long enough, choose both. When else will you get the chance to see this much talent in just two weekends?
Don’t Forget to Make Your Rounds
Walk around and explore! Make sure you don’t miss the Louisiana Folklife Village spotlighting the heritage of ritual and celebration. The Mardis Gras Indians will definitely make an appearance.
Wear Comfortable Shoes
We’re just gonna tell you upfront. The party will definitely spill over into the streets. As you’re heading back to your hotel, take some side streets to avoid being stuck behind the giant parade ensemble.
Bring Sunscreen and A Light Jacket
Okay, this sounds confusing. But we have a point, we swear. The Jazz Fest weather can be unpredictable and like any area in the south, temperatures can flip the switch from humid and sunny to pouring rain in just a few hours.
Get Your Grub On
Don’t pack a picnic. First of all, it will be a pain to carry and second, the food is amazing. Skip bringing your own PB&J sandwiches and opt for something from a food truck. You can thank us later.
Everywhere You Turn, There Is Art
There’s art just about everywhere. Swing by the Louisiana Marketplace and the Contemporary Crafts Tents. You’re guaranteed to find some lovely crafts from local and regional artisans.
Dance the Night Away
The party doesn’t stop after the headliners leave the stage. Come on, this is New Orleans! Pop by the clubs over at Frenchman Street or hit up the Maple Leaf. Big stars often make a pit stop here themselves. Why miss out on the opportunity for a great photo op?
Follow the Flags
Not sure where to go to find the Jazz Festival? Follow the flags. Colorful bands serve as road signs, leading you where to go. With crowds of this size, it can be a bit tricky to find the right spot. Use these markers to navigate and find out where you left your friends when you wandered off to find that delicious smelling hot dog truck.
