Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to present our jazz festival to the community for FREE! Each year, attendees enjoy the music of world-renowned musicians, in a fun, family-friendly, outdoor environment. We will be back on South Street next year. Our festival keeps musicians working, provides selling opportunities for craft vendors and attracts customers to South Street West businesses.
