Jacksonville Jazz Fest

Friday, May 25-May 28

Take in one of the largest jazz festivals in the country in Downtown Jax this weekend, where you'll find three stages featuring some seriously smokin' musical acts-Kamasi Washington, anyone?-alongside heavy hitters from the way back, like The Commodores, and up-and-comers still cutting their teeth on the festival circuit. With tons of tasty eats (and drinks!) and entertainment everywhere you turn, the 15-block footprint of this urban street festival has something for everyone.
