The City of New Orleans is well known for its many music, food and arts festivals and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is definitely one of the best. Some of the biggest names in today’s music world are scheduled to appear at the Fairgrounds Race Course beginning April 27th and overall attendance is expected to be in the range of 400,000 visitors.

Because traffic is expected to be very heavy in New Orleans and shuttle buses will be crammed, it is recommended that you arrange your transportation in advance. If you are looking for a limo service in New Orleans, Limo Livery is well equipped to handle chauffeured service to the event despite the traffic nightmare. Even if you’re bringing along 10 of your friends, Limo Livery have the vans and buses to carry even the largest group of revelers coming to party. After serving New Orleans with quality limo transportaton for more than 25 years, you can also expect that Limo Livery will transport some of the featured artists for the festival that encompasses seven days of music, food and drink.

The festival, perhaps better known as simply the New Orleans Jazz Festival, is arguably the 2nd most important event in New Orleans, next to Mardi Gras, unless of course, the New Orleans Saints find a way to make it back to the Super Bowl. While the free French Quarter Festival that just ended April 15th grew a larger crowd, the New Orleans Jazz Fest offers a superior group of musical artists that will perform jazz, zydeco, gospel, blues and other popular forms of music.

This year’s impressive lineup of artists scheduled to appear include Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Beach Boys, The Eagles, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Foo Fighters, Jimmy Buffett, Florence and the Machine and the Zac Brown Band. Those musicians and groups only represent just a brief sampling at the New Orleans Jazz Festival and all told, there are over 115 world-class musical acts that will appear at the event that has previously hosted music legends such as Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach and even the Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin.

Not only will be there be an eclectic array of musical acts, there will be contemporary crafts at the Louisiana Marketplace, cultural villages and oh, the incredibly delicious New Orleans food! From Cajun Jambalaya and Creole Stuffed Crab to Crawfish Étouffée and Okra Gumbo, you will have the luxury to choose from a huge assortment of food booths with the best types of food you can find in the State of Louisiana. But it’s not just Louisiana food you’ll find at the booths – there are also gyros, falafels, Cuban and BBQ chicken sandwiches, in addition to seafood tacos and spicy sushi. Just thinking of all the foods available will enjoy will likely make you salivate at the notion of trying a little of everything!

If you are staying in the French Quarter, the convention center or the central business district, please know that you will be miles away from the fairgrounds so efficient ground transportation is an absolute must.

So if you need ground transportation to one of the most important music and cultural events in New Orleans or if you require airport service to your hotel, you should make your reservations with a New Orleans limo service you can rely on to get to your destination in a timely manner and to avoid the hassles of driving through the expected congestion in and around the city.
