We do! We do! Jazz Fest marks 50th anniversary by adding an extra day

The culturious got great news this week when the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival announced it will add an extra day in 2019 in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

That means the festival will go from seven days to eight days spread out over two weekends (April 25-28 and May 2-5). Locals have another reason to celebrate: they will  be able to get in for $50 on the first Thursday with their Louisiana ID.
