Atlanta Jazz Festival 2019

The Atlanta Jazz Festival (AJF) is regarded as one of the largest FREE jazz festivals in the country. An annual celebration of the music, culture and art of jazz begins in April and culminates each Memorial Day weekend, with an outdoor festival in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, featuring jazz artists from all over the world.

The mission of the AJF is to expose and entertain a diverse audience of Jazz aficionados, young Jazz enthusiasts and aspiring musicians to the rich heritage and variety of Jazz as an authentic form of American music.

The AJF is produced by the City of Atlanta – Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. It is FREE and open to the public. The AJF is funded through the support of corporate sponsorships as well as Atlanta Jazz Festival, Inc., a non-profit entity dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Atlanta Jazz Festival.
