THINGS TO KNOW
We are thankful for your attendance at the 26th Annual Natchitoches Jazz/R&B Festival and want to help make your festival experience a great one.
NO PERSONAL CHAIRS WILL BE ALLOWED ON FESTIVAL GROUNDS. THERE WILL BE NO CHAIRS IN FRONT OF OR ADJACENT TO THE MAIN STAGE EXCEPT IN THE VIP AREA AND HANDICAPPED SEATING AT THE TOP OF THE HILL.
There is an amphitheater directly in front of the Main Stage and the festival is providing ample additional seating in the VIP area adjacent to the stage and in the areas in front of the two side stages.
The reason for these restrictions is due to the size and configuration of the venue. We have experimented over the festival's 25 years with different chair policies and we have found that this policy is the one that works best for all attendees.
There will be great music on ALL the stages! That is the best way to enjoy the full festival experience! We encourage people to visit the other stages where they can sit comfortably in the chairs provided by the festival from time to time and then return to the Main Stage if that’s what they want to do. We will have seat cushions for sale inside the gift shop.
We apologize for any inconvenience or consternation this may cause, but again, we've found this policy works the best and allows more people to attend and enjoy the festival.
Thank you for understanding and for your participation in this festive annual event. We look forward to seeing you there!
