Manayunk will kick off Philadelphia's Jazz Appreciation Month this year with its first annual JazzFest: a 3-day live music celebration, featuring gypsy jazz, traditional jazz and blues, Latin jazz, jam sessions, and everything in between! The festival will begin with headliners Bootsie Barnes and Larry McKenna on April 2nd at Venice Island Performing Arts Center. Lineup, schedule, and ticketing information coming soon!

Jazz Bridge

Proceeds from ticket and merchandise sales will go to Jazz Bridge - a local non-profit that assists blues and jazz musicians coping with life-altering health, legal, financial, personal and professional crises, by advocating for their needs, bridging financial and logistical gaps, and increasing employment opportunities and awareness of the local jazz sound.
