Dive into a musical gathering that combines the fervor of a gospel hymn with the joy of a jazz parade, bringing together some of the most iconic artists from New Orleans and around the world. Founded in 1970 by George Wein, Quint Davis and Allison Miner, Jazz Fest gathers an average of half a million fans every year who come to see performances by the likes of Leah Chase, Carole King and the Neville Brothers. This year, the Annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will run from October 8th to the 17th and features a line-up nothing short of legendary with previous performers including Diana Ross, Al Green, Earth, Wind & Fire and Leon Bridges.
Set less than 20 minutes away from the Old No. 77 Hotel, this even is a must-see for any NOLA visitor after a true taste of the city. Get more information about the event and lineup here as well as live updates via Instagram.
