How to get New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival tickets

0

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival takes place at the Heritage Fairgrounds during two weekends in the Spring. The festival focuses on music, crafts from artisans from the area, and classic Louisiana cuisine where you can learn and enjoy the rich culture and heritage of the state. The music won’t just consist of Jazz, you’ll be able to enjoy blues, R&B, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, bluegrass, Latin, rap, country, rock, folk and more. We will outline a few things to help you prepare for the festival.

When can you buy?

Right now tickets aren’t on sale since the festival was only a few months ago. But I bet you are anxiously waiting for when you can get tickets for next year. We want you to know that you can sign up for the festival’s E-list to receive emails concerning when tickets go on sale, promotions, and lineups. Something else to consider is following the festival on Twitter and Facebook for even more information about the event.

Weekend One. Weekend Two.

Hotels

If you are planning to stay for any length of time in New Orleans then you’ll need to check out accommodations for your stay. We suggest the sooner the better since hotel rooms might get booked extremely early. The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival website offers a plethora of hotel options to choose from for your stay in Louisiana. You can select a room type from their list. Don’t forget to get the Jazz Fest Rate to get discounts for your room during your stay.
