There's no better way to watch live performances at Jazz Fest than in their private cabanas. You can bid on access to one of the festival's brand new cabanas for Sunday, May 5.

The cabana allows for a perfect view of the Festival Stage with complimentary drinks, parking passes, restrooms, and more. It is shaded and fits 20-30 people, so it is the perfect option for a group.

If you go to Jazz Fest to look at all the art vendors to see what the artists have to offer, you can bid on some of their artworks. You can bid on unique clothing, jewelry, exclusive one-of-a-kind items, and much more.

Show support for your local Louisiana artists, while also receiving a one-of-a-kind collectable in the process.
