Vance Vaucresson: Jazz Fest Flashback

Published on: March 9th, 2019

Vaucresson Sausage is the only original food vendor remaining at Jazz Fest. The company's history with the festival goes even farther back than the first festival in 1970-- in the 1960s, Newport Jazz Fest founder George Wein and Pres Hall's Larry Borenstein and Allan Jaffe met for lunch at Vaucresson's Cafe Creole to discuss what would eventually become the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Find out more about that watershed moment and the history of Vaucresson's at Jazz Fest in this WWOZ Jazz Fest Flashback with Vance Vaucresson:
