jazz fest stage
on the last weekend of april and the first weekend of may the city of new orleans hosts the annual jazz & heritage festival. the festival is located at fair grounds race course west of the french quarter. the festival has a number of stages and tents where jazz, blues, rock, cajun, zydeco, afro-caribbean, and country music is played. each night when the concerts are over the spectators invade the french quarter to continue the party. jazz fest is not has rowdy as mardi gras and the crowds tend to be older and more well behaved. i have been to four jazz fests over the years and they are a lot of fun. see the attached web site for ticket information and dates.
new orleans has a very large gay and lesbian population and the french quarter is a gay and lesbian tourist attraction. st. ann street runs east and west through the french quarter and most of the gay and lesbian attractions are north of this street. when walking north on bourbon street when you cross st. ann street you will notice the change in the neighborhood. if you are uncomfortable with this life style stay south of st. ann street when in the french quarter.
