The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is back at the Fair Grounds Race Course for a nine-day celebration of jazz, arts, culture, food and history of the genre on April 28 to May 7, and the spotlight for this year shines on Cuba. Guests will get to see about 600 musicians live on stage including big-named stars like Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg, Meghan Trainor and Maroon 5 among many others.

Fox News reported Festival Producer Quint Davis as saying, "That one city could have all of this great talent, is just incredible in my opinion." He continued to share, "I don't think you could find this kind of talent anywhere else. There are buried treasures everywhere on this schedule, and I encourage you to look at those cubes, make plans and dig deep for them."

Visitors will also get to view and buy artisans' works, which include handcrafted clothing, paintings, sculptures, musical instruments, metal, prints and potteries. People are opting to stop over at the Congo Square African Marketplace, Heritage Square and Louisiana Marketplace to experience the jazz culture and history of the city.

Food stalls are lining up over the weekends for locals and tourists alike to taste different Cajun-based food like crawfish, jambalaya, seafood mirliton casserole, and po-boys, among the dozens of arrays. Desserts and drinks will also delight revelers with New Orleans smoked sausage macque choux and locally-made gelato.

If people wanted a more culture-heritage feel to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, they could head to the Louisiana Folklife Village to witness Cajun musicians in their craft, or to the Native American Village to view demo works of Louisiana's indigenous people like weaving, bead making, or probably do a dance or two. The Grandstand of the festival lets revelers experience a diversity of the state's cuisine and arts with special exhibitions on six areas.
