As summer wraps up, festival season marches on with the 18th annual Satchmo SummerFest. Catch the fest at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old New Orleans Mint Aug. 3-5.
Daily admission is $5 (children 12 and under are no charge). Proceeds will go toward supporting local musicians and funding the event. Festival attendees can enjoy delicious eats, craft beer and a full lineup of local musicians.
Take a shady bike ride down Esplanade Avenue or hop on the streetcar line. If you drive, convenient parking is available just outside the festival grounds at the French Market lot.
