The Center City Jazz Festival is Philadelphia’s premier jazz event, linking over 1,200 attendees to
professional jazz artists through a series of performances and other activities. The festival features
performances by nearly 30 hand-selected bands at five venues all located within walking distance of
each other in Center City Philadelphia. During the 2018 Jazz Festival, we will introduce a sixth venue – an
outdoor soundstage that will have free programming throughout the festival allowing several hundred
additional jazz enthusiasts to attend. The 2018 Festival will also feature numerous activities beyond
the live performances including a pop-up shop with CCJF merchandise, interactive experiences with
community partners and sponsors, specialty food and cocktails, and much more!
