To hallmark one of New Orleans’ oldest traditions, “Jazz in the Park” was established to showcase local artists and celebrate the city’s lyrical legacy.

Jazz music has steadily pulsated through the cultural veins of New Orleans since far before Loyola opened its doors to students in 1912. Understanding the music and cultural heritage of our home is a quintessential part of the ‘New Orleans experience’. Artists and bands perform each Thursday in Louis Armstrong Park from Sept. 3 to Oct. 29.

Over 110,000 patrons come out every Thursday to hear the up-and-coming jazz musicians of the city, so get there early.
