New Orleans Jazz Fest 2016…Wanna Go?

Unfortunately we are unable to make our annual trek to New Orleans for Jazz Fest this year. That means that our timeshare in the French Quarter is available for rent from April 29 – May 6, 2016.

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.

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, April 29:  Paul Simon, My Morning Jacket, Ms. Lauren Hill, Elvin Bishop, Irma Thomas, Los Lobos, Irvin Mayfield & the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, John Mooney & Bluesiana, Jesse McBride Big Band, Aurora Nealand & The Royal Roses, and many more.

On Saturday April 30: Stevie Wonder, Beck, Snoop Dogg, Buddy Guy, Arturo Sandoval, Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas, Kermit Ruffins’ Tribute to Louis Armstrong, Curtis Pierre & the Samba Kings, Treme Brass Band, Cyril Neville’s Royal Southern Brotherhood, Kim Carson Band, The Soul Rebels and many more.

And on Sunday May 1: Neil Young & the Promise of the Real, Bonnie Raitt, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Chris Botti, Arlo Guthrie, Aaron Neville, Ivan Neville & Dumpstaphunk with Art Neville, Zigaboo Modeliste’s Funk Review, Charmaine Neville Band, Marcia Ball, Mavis Staples, Irma Thomas, The Nayo Jones Experience, Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. &  the Zydeco Twisters and many more.

And of course throughout that weekend the bars, clubs and music venues throughout the French Quarter will be offering amazing concerts and performances.

If you’ve never been to Jazz Fest (officially known as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival), 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 $375 per night. However we are offering our timeshare for the entire week (Checking in Friday April 29 and out Friday May 6) for just $1000 US. Please email us for more information.
