Ahoy jazz lovers – the 24th annual Lansing JazzFest is set for August 3rd and 4th, 2018! This popular festival of great jazz performances sees local, regional, and national acts pulling out all the stops in the streets of Lansing’s Old Town.
Lansing JazzFest brings two full days of jazz and fun to Old Town Lansing. The event always attracts large crowds of 7,000 plus to hear free, live performances of often new and rare jazz.
Though the music is definitely the focus, that’s not all there is to the event! JazzFest also includes an booth-city of vendors selling excellent fresh food, arts and crafts, jewelry, clothing, accessories, and more. You’ll also have the chance to grab a seat in The Turnaround Lounge.
The Turnaround Lounge will be selling wine pours, along with both canned and draft beers. Further, the Turnaround Lounge is a prime location to enjoy music from both JazzFest’s main stages. A seat in the Turnaround Lounge is only $5 a day – but seating is limited so you’ll want to grab yours before they fill up!
