Held at the New Orelans Fair Grounds, in addition to several other local venues, Jazz Fest (as it has become popularly known) is perhaps the ultimate celebration of the unique music, culture and heritage of New Orleans and Louisiana. From its humble beginnings in downtown’s Congo Square in the late 1960′s, it has become one of the most widely attended annual musical and cultural events in the country. Featured will be top-name artists, as well as some lesser known and locally prominent names, on many stages, as well as succulent local and regional delicacies, a second line parade, unique handmade arts and crafts, and much more. The lineup for the 45th annual Fest includes: Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Santana, Robert Plant, Lyle Lovett, Chaka Khan & John Fogerty.
