Regarded as one of the largest free jazz festivals in the country, the annual Atlanta Jazz Festival celebrates the talent of revered jazz legends while also showcasing up-and-coming jazz artists. Venues throughout the city play host to intimate performances throughout the month of May, but the festivities culminate on May 25-26 with a weekend long music-filled celebration in Piedmont Park.
Spend Memorial Day weekend exploring the park and visit vendors displaying some of the city’s finest arts and crafts, food and drinks, and merchandise. The Atlanta Jazz Festival is now in its 41st year and is a great way to spread the love of jazz to a new generation of fans.
