New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival just wrapped up their 50th anniversary year of their cultural festival in New Orleans, something I got the pleasure to attend this year, and I’m already making plans to return to next year’s festival.

The organizers announced that following such a successful turnout this year — over 475,000 people — they will keep the expanded version of the festival in play and keep it at 8 total days of fairgrounds activity for people to enjoy.

Next year’s 51st annual event will span April 23 – May 3, 2020, with eight festival days (April 23 – 26 and April 30 – May 3).
