NEW ORLINES – With the French Quarterfest coming to fall, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has decided to follow.
Eyewitnesses have confirmed that the 2021 Jazz Fest will take place in October.
Sources told WWL-TV that the 2021 Jazz Fest will take place over the two-day, three-day weekend, Oct. 8-10 and Oct. 15-17.
The two weekends follow the French Quarter Fest, officially re-scheduled September 30 through October 3.
Organizers of the French Quarter Fest said their festival may be down a bit as concerns about how far the COVID-19 coronavirus will spread is still unknown.
It also puts the Jazz Fest and the French Quarter Fest in the middle of hurricane season.
