Over the years, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has grown into a musical force of nature, attracting A-list bands from just about every genre. In true New Orleans fashion, music shares the spotlight with dozens upon dozens of classic Crescent City and bayou favorites.
Come hungry when you walk through the gates of this year’s festival, because you’ll have a lot of the best festival food to try. Between the three major food areas, and a handful of vendors scattered throughout the grounds, you will find perfectly crispy cracklins from St. Francisville’s famous Fatty’s Cracklins. While making your rounds, be sure not to miss the Native American dishes at the Cultural Exchange and Folk areas. The fry bread and creamy shrimp macque choux are stellar.
