New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

Are you into hip-hop, rock, jazz, funk, gospel, or blues music? Then Jazz Fest is for you! And this year is very special as it marks the 50th anniversary. This culturally rich festival has live entertainment for every music fan! Jazz Fest is held every year during the spring over two consecutive weekends. During this time, music fans from all over the world will flock to the Fairgrounds Race Course to see some of the top musical acts around as well as local favorites.


Jazz Fest isn't all about the music. There's plenty of delicious local cuisine to enjoy! And be sure and check out all of the Arts & Crafts and Cultural Activities around the grounds. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Don't miss out!

Producers of the 50th anniversary Jazz Fest have decided to mark the milestone event with something special: the addition of another day of the signature festival celebrating New Orleans music and culture. Thursday, April 25 will now be the opening day of the 2019 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell. 

The Festival also announced that the new day will be “Locals Thursday,” which allows anyone with a valid Louisiana ID to purchase up to two discount tickets at the gate on that day.  “Locals Thursday” discount tickets will again be only $50.
