One of my favourite trips to take is to New Orleans for Jazz Fest. Good weather, amazing food, friendly people, and great music – it has it all.
I’m already looking forward to this year’s trip and so I thought I would share some photos with you from years past.
We always start the day with bloody marys from Liuzza’s by the Track. They’re stuffed full with olives, pickled green beans and pickled onions. Delicious.
The food at the fairgrounds is good and varied, unusual for most music fests. Above, the famous cochon de lait po’ boy, the first stall I head to.
After the fest everyone sets up their chairs in the streets outside Liuzza’s to hang out and grab a drink. It’s also not unusual for musicians (even some performers from the festival) to set up here and start playing.
Clubs and bars all over the city have amazing shows every night throughout the fest. It’s a great time in a great place and if you ever have the chance to go, you should!
