New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
At the direction of City of New Orleans authorities, in response to ongoing COVID-19 health concerns, the 2020 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell will not occur this April and May, as scheduled. The health and safety of the community, musicians, festival fans, participants, sponsors and staff are paramount, and they urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

Are you into hip-hop, rock, jazz, funk, gospel, or blues music? Then Jazz Fest is for you! 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 2019 50th anniversary Jazz Fest decided to mark the milestone event with something special: the addition of another day of the signature festival celebrating New Orleans music and culture. This tradition will continue through 2020!
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.
