Cuba comes to the New Orleans Jazz Fest 2017

It’s billed as “the largest celebration of Cuban culture in the U.S. since the 1950’s” – and it may well be true.

This year’s New Orleans Jazz Fest will include over 150 Cuban musicians, artists and craftsman, a large number of whom will be visiting the United States for the very first time.

Events will be at the Cultural Exchange Pavilion.

Performances on the Cuban Stage every day from 11:30 AM to 5:30 PM
