Food Heritage Stage 2019

To celebrate Jazz Fest’s 50th anniversary, the Food Heritage Stage and Cajun Cabin have some exciting new features. To reflect our culinary culture we have chosen a theme for each day of demonstrations at the Food Heritage stage, culminating in a day featuring seven different gumbos!

There is also a spotlight every day, featuring interviews with Jazz Fest food vendors, culinary icons and the inspiration for the stage coming into being.

Lastly, we have taken a deep dive into the Festival Foundation’s Jazz & Heritage Archive and have created a video loop featuring some of the most beloved demonstrations from years past.

Very special thanks to the intrepid Poppy Tooker for all her magic, The Jazz & Heritage Archive, Jonathan Evans and Tracy Jones.
