  • I go every year for the music and crawfish bread. This was my daughter's first year and we will make this our annual "must do". Although my daughter's main objective was to watch Maroon 5, it was nice to see her dancing around to the different types of music.
  • Great setup for Jazz Fest this year. We would have appreciated it more if y'all hadn't turned off the TVs right before the derby.
  • Jazz festival. Maroon five next day Tom Petty. All time great event.
  • Great for locals. Small and quaint. Clean and respectable.
  • Went for NOLA Jazz fest, venue packed, limited shade and no free water. Overall a great experience.
