New Orleans Jazz Fest 2011 – Wanna Go?
Posted by Tony & Cheri on February 18, 2011
Feb 19, 2011 update: WE HAVE JUST RENTED OUT OUR TIME SHARE WEEK. CHECK BACK NEXT YEAR IF YOU’RE INTERESTED!
Unfortunately we are unable to make our yearly trek to New Orleans for Jazz Fest this year. That means that our timeshare in the French Quarter is available for rental from May 6-13, 2011.
The timeshare is in the Quarter House, which is located on Chartres Street in the French Quarter. It will accommodate four people (one bedroom and a pullout couch in the living room). Each suite has its own completely furnished kitchen, dishes, linens, private jacuzzi bath or walk-in shower with European shower heads, color television, DVD players, and everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Hi-speed wireless internet connections are available in all rooms as is private telephone service. There is also a courtyard swimming pool, maid service, laundry facilities, and concierge services. There is a complimentary continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings served in the lush tropical courtyard. We’ve been staying at the Quarter House exclusively for our trips to New Orleans for over 15 years, and we love it.
Another nice thing about the Quarter House is its location – just half a block from Canal Street and right around the corner from the Sheraton, which is where the Jazz Fest buses run from. It’s also just a couple of blocks to Bourbon Street and the regular fun of the French Quarter. It couldn’t be more ideally located.
The great news is that our timeshare period covers the second weekend of Jazz Fest, which is always the biggest and the best. Musical acts during the second weekend this year include:
On Friday, May 6: Arcade Fire, Willie Nelson, Lupe Fiasco, Better Than Ezra, Gregg Allman Blues Band, Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and many, many more.
On Saturday May 7: Jimmy Buffett, The Strokes, Lauryn Hill, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Allen Toussaint, Marcia Ball, Fourplay, Aaron Neville’s Gospel Experience and many, many more.
And on Saturday May 8: Kid Rock, The Neville Brothers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Sonny Rollins, The Radiators’ farewell, Cowboy Mouth, Papa Grows Funk and many, many more.
If you’ve never been to Jazz Fest, you should go at least once. It’s an amazing festival of music, food and culture set in one of our very favorite cities in the world, New Orleans. Once you go, you’ll want to go year after year!
Rooms at the Quarter House generally run $350 per night. However we are offering our timeshare for the entire week (Checking in Friday May 6 and out Friday May 13) for just $1200 US. Please email us for more information.
