New Orleans Jazz Fest: The Mother of Jazz Festivals

The birthplace of jazz is already great, but it just gets better during the spring. The New Orleans Jazz Fest celebrates the deep roots of music culture from blues, R&B, gospel, folk, cajun, jazz, bluegrass and more. It’s not just about music either. The festival focuses on traditional foods, crafts and plenty of other attractions.

In the spring of 1970, Mahalia Jackson, gospel singing great, started a spontaneous parade filled with the spirit of jazz music. From there on out the New Orleans Jazz Festival became a cultural force that was destined to represent the popular appeal of music and city heritage.

The lineup never fails to feature only the biggest names in the industry. 2019’s lineup is sure to impress throughout 12 different stages and tents while four different parades will be sure to keep the party bumpin’. 

“Deep roots, delicious food and an experience of a lifetime.”

Where to View the New Orleans Jazz Festival

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival takes place in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana. There are 12 music stages and tents of various sizes and themes. Food stages are also setup for those looking to indulge in the finest southern food. An extremely wide variety of performances take place each year which range from little known Louissan based artists to the big-time players in the music industry.

How to Get Around New Orleans

New Orleans is a very flat city and not too vast in size making it perfect for bike riding and walking throughout the downtown area. The clean and convenient streetcar runs across four main lines for very consistent travel.  Additionally, the city bus is inexpensive and has a wide network for those looking to explore other parts of the city.

Where to Stay for New Orleans Jazz Fest

Although New Orleans has plenty of great attractions and places to stay it’s important to choose the right neighborhood. The Garden District and Central Business District are great places to stay for those looking for a bit of a high-end experience. For those looking for a wild time, make sure to look at spots close to Bourbon Street to be right in the middle of the 24/7 party atmosphere.
