The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is an annual event that draws in nearly half a million attendees each year. It was first held in Congo Square in 1970 and has since become a beloved tradition for many. Tickets for the festival go on sale in January, along with the announcement of the talent lineup. To purchase tickets, visitors can visit the festival's ticket page for more information.
All attendees must agree to follow the festival's policies, including health and safety regulations, and to abide by instructions given during their stay at the festival. Children over the age of two must have a ticket to access the Krewe of JazzFest observation area. Tickets are available for sale on the days of the festival from designated locations or can be purchased in advance. Additionally, JazzFest Express vehicles will require a special ticket to avoid traffic and bring festival attendees to the gates.
