I have been to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival twice.  It is something that everyone should do, in my humble opinion.  The festival is held at a horse track, with multiple stages playing different music.  Any variety of Louisiana music is well represented.

Then there’s the food!

Rather than normal festival fair of funnel cakes and corn dogs,  “no festival food” is allowed. Instead, restaurateurs compete to serve food at this festival!  Pheasant quail gumbo,  Crawfish Bisque and Fried Plantains are just a few of the yummies to be had.  

The vibe is great.  

Everyone is sweating to start with (New Orleans in spring) and that is before any dancing.  And no doubt, dancing is both inevitable and irresistible. Everyone is dancing. All day! Maybe this is why there is no intense alcohol vibe, even though an impressive amount of beer is consumed.  By closing time, there is a carpet of beer cans on the grounds, yet everyone is completely chill.

Yep, my money is on the dancing.  For any musician or any music lover, this is a must-do festival.
