New Orleans Jazz Fest 2017…Wanna Go?

Posted by Tony & Cheri on March 5, 2017

Unfortunately we are unable to make our annual trek to New Orleans for Jazz Fest this year,  so our timeshare in the French Quarter is available during  the second weekend of Jazz Fest for the night of Friday May 5, 2017 only. 

The timeshare is in the Stevie WonderQuarter House, which is located on Chartres Street in the French Quarter. It is 529 square feet and will accommodate four people (one bedroom with a queen sized bed and a similar sized pullout couch in the living room). It has its own completely furnished kitchen, dishes, linens, private jacuzzi bath with European shower head, 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 5:  Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds; Earth, Wind & Fire; Wilco; Sonny Landreth; Boney James; Anders Osborne; Rhiannon Giddens and many more.

On Saturday May 6: Stevie Wonder (one of our all-time favorite Jazz Fest performers); Snoop Dogg; Meghan Trainor; Irma Thomas; Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk;  and many more.

And on Sunday May 7: Kings of Leon; Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue; Patti LaBelle; The Meters; Buddy Guy; Blues Traveler; Preservation Hall Jazz Band; Tab Benoit; 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 during special events; however, ours is available for only $150, taxes included.   Please email us for more information.
