Over the years, Satchmo SummerFest has evolved into what one visiting music writer called “a mini-Jazz Fest.” With three days of outdoor concerts, music history seminars, jazz exhibits, a jazz mass, a second-line parade and plenty of local food delicacies and drinks, the festival has become a travelers', as well as a local, favorite. Nearly all of the participating musicians are New Orleans-based. A Satchmo art contest and exhibit at the Crescent City Brewhouseattracts some of the city's most talented artists to create works in a Satchmo motif. There's even a fun-filled “Satchmo Strut” down Frenchmen Street, taking in most of the nightclubs in the city's preeminent live music district.
