Gray Line Gets You Closer to the Music.

Follow the second line to Gray Line’s Official Jazz Fest Shuttle. It’s the only shuttle that takes you inside the Fair Ground gates! Air-conditioned buses offer round-trip transportation and run continuously until the last festival goer leaves. What’s more, they enter through an exclusive entrance reserved just for the Official Jazz Fest Shuttle busses! Uber and Lyft have zones that require drop-off and pick-up a couple of blocks away. Avoid the surge! No one gets you closer to the fun than Gray Line.
Buy your tickets at three Gray Line departure points (see below) on the days of the Fest at full price or purchase advance discounted admission tickets over the phone until 4 p.m. on the day prior to the start date for each weekend. Gray Line does not charge service fees. This service is offer simply for your convenience.
If you are in need of a lift vehicle to transport you in a wheelchair or motorized scooter, call 504-569-1401 or 800-233-2628 in advance so they can better serve you.
