With over 60+ food and drink vendors, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is known for its often exclusive food. Though the festival had to cancel this year due to Covid-19, there are a few ways to get in on the once-a-year goodness at home, and our list of Jazz Fest food and drink vendors is the perfect place to start. Place an order online, or swing by these restaurants for takeout, and get ready to have a fest feast all weekend long from home. You might even go so far as to arrange your home à la the festival grounds, perhaps with Food Area 1 set up in the kitchen, Heritage Square in the laundry room - you get the gist. Each order will support a local restaurant, even more of a reason to splurge on a few extra crawfish pies. Browse the vendors virtually with our guide, organized by area as the festival would have it.
