BUKU offers a variety of VIP packages, and if you shell out a bit more for your tickets, you get access to premium viewing areas, admission to an open-bar party riverboat docked on the Mississippi adjacent to the festival grounds, and exclusive performances.
If, on the other hand, you’re strapped for cash, apply to be a festival volunteer. You only have to work a few shifts and you get free admission.
You can’t come all the way here and not venture into New Orlean’s historic, unforgettable French Quarter. Vieux Carré’s jazzy, frilly charm will win you over, whether or not you’re a Francophile.
