Well it's the Jazz Fest turn next on the list of festivals in New Orleans. Celebrating it's 45th year, the Jazz Fest features scores of local and international musicians and artists. The dates are April 25,26,27 and May 1,2,3,4 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. People come from all over the world to the New Orleans Fairgrounds for seven full days of music, arts and food! Yes, that's right not just the music and art but the food are a big draw as well. Check out the article By Scott Gold
If you've never been to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, you've probably still heard about it. It is, by all accounts, one of the longest-running, largest, and most-renowned music festivals in the Crescent City (if not the world!), and while theres a TON of amazing music, one of the best reasons to head down to the Fair Grounds actually has nothing to do with jazz, gospel, funk, rock, blues, or even Bruce Springsteen. It's the food. You can literally spend an entire day at Jazz Fest doing nothing but eating, and even then, you probably wouldn't be able to handle everything the vendors have to offer. Here's the best of what's there...
Cajun Nights Catering
African Combo Plate
Cochon De Lait Poboy
Love at First Bite
Vaucresson Sausage Co.
Japanese Yakiniku Po-Boy
Ninja Sushi Restaurant
Lamb Tagine and Merguez Sausage
Pheasant, Quail, and Andouille Gumbo
