ATLANTA JAZZ FESTIVAL
May 23-24, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Piedmont Park, Atlanta
Don’t miss the fun and excitement at the annual
Atlanta Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park, one of the
country’s largest free jazz festivals. During the
entire month of May, more than 100 of the best jazz
performers showcase their talents in venues
throughout the metro area before coming together
in a huge weekend celebration at Piedmont Park.
The festival showcases local and national jazz
greats, a neighborhood jazz series, youth jazz band
competition, a kids zone and many other family
In 1977 organizers of the first “Atlanta Free
Jazz Festival” wanted to host a celebration where
the music would be a liberated art form at no cost
to the community. Only the best jazz would do.
They pulled together the 29-act festival on a
shoestring budget with sponsors such as Coca Cola
and Peaches Record Store. By 1984 when ‘free’ was
dropped from the name the Atlanta Jazz Festival
had major national sponsorship and a reputation
for pulling in some of the top Jazz artists in the
world, and the commitment to keep the jazz free
flowing and the festival free of charge remained.
Now, more than 40 years later, hundreds of
acts take the stage each year during a month long
celebration of Atlanta jazz before coming to a close
each Memorial Day weekend at the historic
Piedmont Park. The weekend features numerous
nationally-acclaimed artists and is free and open to
the public. Explore the park and visit vendors
displaying some of the city’s finest arts and crafts,
food and drinks, and merchandise.
Over the years the Atlanta Jazz Festival has
been backdrop to musical legends such as Miles
Davis, Dizzie Gillespie and Nina Simone.
The Atlanta Jazz Festival will take place May 23 and 24 in Atlanta.
