2 pm to 12 midnight



Live streaming from the stage at 
South Jazz Parlour

600 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 

Stay tuned for our artist lineup! 

After much consideration, and in lieu of the Covid -19 pandemic, we have decided to live stream our festival from Philly's premier jazz music spot....South Jazz Parlour! 

Very special thanks to our sponsors for partnering with LifeLine Music Coalition to help us make this festival possible...PECO, PHFA, William King Foundation, Community College of Philadelphia and South Jazz Parlour!  

The festival performances will not be pre-recorded. 


They will be LIVE in REAL time from the stage at South Jazz Parlour. Our goal is to bring the same spirit and passion of festival attendees on South Street to our virtual audience. Our virtual audience will hear, feel and experience LIVE music from a unique and proven lineup of Jazz artists in celebration of our festival’s theme —— UNDEFEATED JAZZ!!!!

We will also be encouraging our streamed audience to create viewing parties and other special events in connection with a full day of music and surprise guest appearances. Let's get creative! 

WRTI 90.1 FM will also be a broadcast partner! 

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. Our festival keeps musicians working, provides selling opportunities for craft vendors and attracts customers to South Street West businesses.
