Is your soul starved for some New Orleans jazz?
You're in luck! The New Orleans Jazz Festival is happening at the fairgrounds on last week of April thru first week of May.
But the festival features more than jazz. Top performers of pop, blues, rock, Cajun, funk and hip-hop are also scheduled to take the stage. There is even a Gospel Tent for gospel lovers.
Plus, such food has never been seen in one place! How does a catfish po-boy, followed up with a slab of key lime pie? Or maybe a crawfish puff and small plate of beignets? Be sure and pop over to the Fair Grounds Grandstand and watch locals demonstrate their signature dishes.
Last year, around 460,000 people flocked to New Orleans for the annual jazz festival, which translates to – you better get your tickets now! Festival management expects tickets to sell out swiftly.
In previous years New Orleans Jazz has drawn pre-eminent artists like Mahalia Jackson, Duke Ellington, Fats Domino and Al Hirt to this fantastic celebration of music and culture.
With 12 stages blasting out music for seven days, the sheer number of artists is mind-boggling. Among the headliners are: Pearl Jam, Van Morrison, My Morning Jacket, Steely Dan, Neil Young, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elvis Costello and Stevie Wonder. And many more.

At the 1970 premiere of Jazz Fest, Mahalia Jackson literally appeared. Jackson's name was not in the official line up, she heard about it and just showed up.
