Center City Jazz Festival 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!


All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
