Atlanta’s favorite free festival is returning for Labor Day Weekend
The Atlanta Jazz Festival is regarded as one of the largest free jazz festivals in the country. It annually celebrates jazz music, legends, as well as up-and-coming artists! The festival usually takes over venues throughout Metropolitan Atlanta during the entire month of May, but due to the pandemic, the festival will now take place on Labor Day weekend!
Guaranteeing a Labor Day to remember, this year’s festival will take place for two days starting Sunday September 5, and concluding on Monday September 6. Venues will also be holding special events in collaboration with the festival, as well as several online events, interviews, and more in the run-up to the festival.
The festival will be taking place in Piedmont Park, with an incredible line-up featuring some fantastic jazz artists. You can catch Patti Austin, Karla Harris (below), Ron Carter, Archie Shepp, Mike Phillips, and so many more show-stopping performers at The Atlanta Jazz Festival.
According to former Mayor Shirley Franklin, “The festival was formed to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of our city and has blossomed into a celebration of our nation’s contribution to human expression.”
So make sure you check out The Atlanta Jazz Festival starting Sunday September 5 in Piedmont Park. You can find the park at 1320 Monroe Dr NE 30306.
