New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

Endless outdoor concerts, great food, incredible music, parades, crafts -  the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has it all.  With 12 stages featuring a wide variety of musical acts -- gospel, jazz, rock, Cajun, African, Native American -- Jazz Fest attracts 500,000 visitors a year and truly offers something for everyone, from small bands in intimate settings to the biggest music stars on huge stages.   There's even a Kids' Tent, featuring music, shows, activities, and crafts for children. 

Jazz Fest runs the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May at the New Orleans Fair Grounds.  See www.nojazzfest.com for music schedules, tickets, and information on travel and accommodations.
