Sweet, Soft, & PLENTY of Rhythm

For seven days, swing in and out of the legacy of the Jazz Age in this annual Amelia Island event. With everything from free concerts in the park to rarified wine tastings and concerts, the organizer, Les DeMerle, has a little something for every jazz lover … we’re especially interested the late-night jams!

The festival starts at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 8 with Jazz in the Park, Amelia Island Park (between 14th Street and Citrona Drive), free; through Oct. 14, ameliaislandjazzfestival.com.
