At Jazz Fest, there are stages named for sponsors, like Acura; stages named for musical genres like Blues, Jazz, and Gospel; and stages named for places, like Congo Square and Economy Hall. But there's only one stage named for a person: the Allison Miner Music Heritage Stage.
Allison Miner was a Jazz Fest founder, music promoter, and manager who was instrumental in the early years of the festival. And in 1988, she established the stage that now bears her name.
