New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by ImAMurphy on February 20, 2005

Dance, eat, and be merry!! JazzFest is always the last weekend of April and first weekend of May. is a great website to plan your experience. Should you want to attend both weekends, you'll find that many artists hold concerts on the days in between to keep the music flowing. Each festival day costs less than $20 and includes various music styles: rock, “zydeco,” gospel, reggae, blues, etc. A GREAT value!! Ranging from least to most expensive, festival tickets can be ordered online, purchased in the city before the event, or at the door. Because the beer stands have lines, many people bring in coolers of ice (you can't bring in your own beer) to buy/hold multiple cans of beer at one time. Plan for $3 to $5 a beer. The festival ends at 7pm each day, but there are concerts offered at other venues at night - some not starting until 1am!
