"I've been to many blues festivals in the U.S. and Europe, and I can honestly say that the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival is a charming piece of musical heaven. If you are planning a trip to New Orleans and want to experience the city and its wonderful music without enormous crowds, put this October, free festival on your musical bucket list."
- Art Tipaldi, Editor, Blues Revue Magazine

The Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival is an award-winning event, with two stages of music, a dozen of the best barbecue vendors in the region and a huge arts market.

The Festival is produced and presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. The Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, uses the proceeds from that world-famous festival for free, year-round programs in education, economic development and cultural enrichment.
