The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation supports community involvement in the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival by distributing thousands of free tickets to the world–famous festival of local music and culture.

As it has for many years, the Foundation’s Community Outreach Tickets program makes free Jazz Fest tickets available to those who otherwise could not afford to attend the festival. The tickets are distributed through social service organizations such as nonprofit, educational, religious and government agencies - and they are for use only by clients of those organizations with financial hardships.

Application deadline is Monday, March 6, 2017.

Eligible Recipients:
• Nonprofit organizations within the state of Louisiana that provide community services; must provide proof of federal 501(c) (3) or Louisiana nonprofit status
• Religious organizations (with proof of nonprofit status)
• Public and non-profit private schools offering grades 9-12 (with proof of nonprofit status)
• Government agencies that provide services to the needy

Click here to apply if you have a group that fits the above criteria and would like to attend the festival this year. 

Schools for pre–kindergarten through seventh graders can make arrangements to attend Jazz Fest through a separate program, School Day at the Fest. For information, please call (504) 410-4100 or send an email to kidsday@nojazzfest.com.
