Considered to be the granddaddy of all music festivals because of its longevity (42 years and still going), Jazz Fest is a favorite among those who follow the festival circuit. Organizers attribute its popularity to the fact that as many as 90 percent of the musicians who perform are based in Louisiana, a fact that gives the event a unique flavor that no other festival can replicate. The dozens of food booths offering a wide array of popular regional dishes is another draw that makes the festival a standout nationally.  I missed out on the fest this year.  It was the first rain free Jazz fest in 12 years and i missed out on it.... maybe next year
