Jazz Fest offers new $50 ticket deal for ‘Locals Thursday’

Jazz Fest organizers introduce a new “Locals Thursday” deal this year, allowing Louisiana residents to purchase $50 tickets on May 3.

Organizers say this is the first time they have offered the deal.

Louisiana residents who present valid identification at the gate can take advantage of the “Locals Thursday” deal. The $50 ticket price is available for up to two admissions per resident.

Tickets will be available for purchase on Thursday only and will be sold at designated windows at the Gentilly and Sauvage ticket booths and at the Trafalgar pedestrian gate. Patrons riding Jazz Fest Express will also be able to purchase their $50 Thursday ticket at those locations.

“Locals Thursday,” a longstanding Jazz Fest tradition, will feature headliner Lionel Richie this year.
