What can I bring into the event?

A good appetite, spirit and attitude! This event has everything else you should need. Please, no Fest chairs! There is plenty of seating in/around the stage and food areas.

Will there be other food and drink available?

Yes, for purchase.

I was chosen for the crawfish eating contest and got free admission on May 1, but I've already bought a ticket. Can I get a refund?

No, there will be no refunds.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The festival is open to all ages so a valid ID is required to in order to receive a 21+ wrist band allowing alcohol to be purchased and consumed.

What are my transportation for getting to and from the event? Parking options?

Jazzfest is a very busy time of year in New Orleans. We highly recommend leveraging the rideshare apps or cabs when possible. There is limited street parking in and around Central City BBQ if you do choose to arrive by vehicle. Biking is always an option as we are centrally located and we will have bike parking for any guests who choose to arrive on two wheels.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

This is a rain or shine event. There will be no refunds provided.
