JazzFest’s music truly is living music, history in the making. Each artist at the festival is asked to play an original composition, something that hasn’t been played at any other festival.

The 2015 festival will take place Friday, August 7  &Saturday, August 8, in the streets of Old Town, surrounded by the best of the Capital City’s art galleries as well as unique retail stores and grand architecture. Vendors offer delicious food, beverages, art, clothing, and crafts, and nearby galleries and boutiques open their doors during festival hours.
