May 1, 2016 | Upcoming Events

The sounds of jazz music will once again flow through the air of Armstrong Park. 

The free concert series is a favorite among both locals and visitors. 

There will be food trucks to keep your energy levels up, a kids' section that includes face-painting and a moon bounce, as well as craft vendors for all shopping and gift giving needs. (It’s never too early to start shopping for Christmas – hint, hint.) You can even make your groceries while you’re there. The outdoor Marketplace will be there selling fresh produce and other grocery items.

Jazz In The Park is on Thursdays from 4 to 8 pm. The park is located at 701 N Rampart St, New Orleans, LA 70116. There is street parking nearby, it’s within walking distance of the French Quarter, and it’s a major stop on several bus routes.
