Grand Marshal VIP Pass
ALL THE FUN OF JAZZ FEST. MORE COMFORTS.
A limited number of Jazz Fest fans can upgrade their Festival experience to a pass that allows exclusive access to an upfront, golden-circle viewing environment at the Festival’s three main stages: The Acura Stage, the Gentilly Stage and the Congo Square Stage.
The Grand Marshal VIP Pass is designed for the Festivalgoer who wants the luxury of moving from stage to stage, combined with the thrill of seeing Jazz Fest’s world-class performers up close.
Grand Marshal guests will have access to a private hospitality tent where they can renew and revitalize with complimentary light refreshments, restrooms as well as a private beverage stand.
Grand Marshal VIP Passes are hugely popular at the Festival each year. As the number of VIP passes sold is very limited, interested patrons are encouraged to purchase their Grand Marshal VIP Passes early to avoid being shut out.
The Grand Marshal VIP Pass is sold by specific weekend and includes re-entry privileges (pedestrian only).
A very limited number of Grand Marshal packages that include reserved parking are available for purchase.

Grand Marshal VIP ticketholders are part of an exclusive, up-close, standing-room only club of Festivalgoers. The stage-area pass does not allow the holder to camp out or to reserve space in the special viewing areas, all of which are chair-free zones. A festive flow of Grand Marshal patrons between performances throughout the day is part of the ethos of this priceless Jazz Fest experience. In addition, cameras with detachable lenses may not be used in this area, and from time to time, picture taking of any kind may not be allowed due to artist restrictions.
* A Grand Marshal ticket is required for all children over the age of 2 to access the Grand Marshal viewing areas.
* The Festival offers a layaway opportunity for all VIP purchases.
* Grand Marshal VIP tickets will be mailed in late March.
