Hit n Run Guide to Jazzfest

NOLA Drinking Chart Creator Sends Up the Fest



Map After the Jump

When is a map more than a map? When it's ripe for satire. Our beloved Jazzfest is an institution so rich with characters and local flavor! It's a real playground for those willing to laugh at themselves. My Hit N Run Guide to Jazzfest should having you navigating the Fairgrounds like you've been going every year for the last million years.

 

As a college lad, my first visit to Jazzfest confused me. I got turned around a lot, got stuck a lot, and I sometimes didn't know what I was watching or why I should care. Why should you be eating hot food in the sun when it's 90 degrees? How the hell do they get those flags in here? And why is that lady in that nutty dress making advances on that watermelon?

I saw some people freak out from the stimulation and hit the ground in the fetal position wailing like Little Freddie King. I wondered if I would be next.

 

'Fest became more manageable to me as the years went on. I've volunteered, been sent for work purposes, and attended on my own recognizance; each time getting more comfortable moving around and finding the place I wanted to be. The map is a summation of activities and factoids I've collected in those travels.

 
Does the map cover absolutely everything there is to know about Jazzfest? Of course not. You'll need an official Jazzfest map to start your planning and the Hit n Run map to complete it. Disagree on a point? Add your own adventuresome observations in the comments. And don't try to climb the chain-link fence and swim in the lake, they don't like that.
 

All bathrooms are not equal

All bathrooms are not equal at Jazz Fest. The bathrooms in the Grandstands are worth the wait. Plus, if you time it right, samples from Zatarain's Food Heritage Stage.

Bad bathrooms? They're not

Bad bathrooms? They're not any cleaner than the others. All the bathrooms are the same.
