Jazz Fest is Going Cashless

Like most other large-scale special events and entertainment venues, Jazz Fest 2023 will be a cashless experience. Ticket, food, beverage, craft, and merchandise booths will no longer accept cash payments. For Festivalgoers who come to the event with only cash, the Festival will offer cash exchange booths near key vending locations. 

What Forms of Payment Will Be Accepted? 

  • All Major Credit Cards
  • Debit Cards
  • Prepaid Cards
  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay
  • Samsung Pay

What’s the Cash Exchange Process at Jazz Fest? 

Patrons without credit cards or digital payment options, can bring their cash to a Cash Exchange location and obtain a prepaid card. There is a maximum exchange of $500 per card. Multiple cards can be purchased. There are no fees associated with getting a card. Any balance remaining on a prepaid card can be spent outside the Festival.

Please see the Jazz Fest Map for Cash Exchange locations.
