For anyone who loves food, music, art, or history (especially music history) - there are few other places we can think to experience than Jazz Fest.
This yearly celebration of art & culture spans the last weekend of April and the first weekend of May every year. Musical acts from near and far make their pilgrimage to Jazz Fest to become a part of the action. If you're lucky (and this happens pretty regularly), national acts will find themselves on stage with local legends where they jam together as if they had played music along side each other for years.
Both the food vendors and the art vendors are highly curated which results in a truly premiere festival experience.
If you've ever considered going, do yourself a favor and book that trip now.
