We are thankful for your attendance at the 25th Annual Natchitoches Jazz/R&B Festival and want to help make your festival experience a great one. While bringing chairs is encouraged, we must caution that ABSOLUTELY NO CHAIRS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE AMPHITHEATER OR IN THE AREA IN FRONT OF OR TO THE SIDE OF THE MAIN STAGE. 


The prohibition of chairs in these areas is due to space limitations and the expectation of our largest crowd to date. Chairs in the amphitheater reduce available space for the number of festival-goers, who can comfortably fit by 50% so your cooperation is greatly appreciated.


CHAIRS ARE ALLOWED AT THE OTHER THREE STAGES. Our hope is that folks bring their chairs and use them to relax and enjoy the music at the side stages while alternating between those and sitting on the tiers at the amphitheater or standing in front of the main stage. There will be great music on ALL the stages!  That is the best way to enjoy the full festival experience!


Thank you for understanding and for your participation in this festive annual event. We look forward to seeing you there.
