Beginning Friday, April 27, thousands will trek to the Fair Grounds Race Course at 1751 Gentilly Blvd. to kick off the first weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

As crowds descend upon the springtime music mecca, we know that Tulanians will take the stage, sell handcrafted creations at the marketplaces, serve up signature cuisine to hungry festival-goers and display different facets of Louisiana’s culture through special exhibits.

We want to know who you are!

If you’re a vendor, presenter or performer taking part in this year’s Jazz Fest and you are a faculty member, staff, student or Tulane alumnus, send an email to newwave@tulane.edu with your name and a brief description of your involvement in the festival.

We can’t guarantee that all submissions will be featured in New Wave but we’d like to hear from you!
