New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
For those of you who do not know, the Jazz Fest Express, the official Jazz Fest Shuttle is located in the gated empty lot on Wisner. It is the only shuttle that drops you off and picks you up inside the gates of the Fair Grounds! $17 per person for round-trip Express shuttle (includes free parking) – 5700 Wisner Blvd. If you don't have a ticket already, they sell them there bundled with the shuttle fee. If you already have a ticket you can just pay for the shuttle. You can also walk to the lot and pay without parking a car.
