Get ready to hear some amazing jazz performances! It’s a great way for the whole family to sit back, relax and listen to some great jazz music.

A Wonderful Day of Jazz for All the Family

The Montclair Jazz Festival takes place on Saturday, August 13. The fun kicks off at noon and lasts until 9 p.m.  Admission is free and you don’t need a ticket. The jazz festival takes place at Nishuane Park in Montclair, NJ.  This popular festival has grown since its humble beginnings as a small community event. This year, more than 5,000 jazz fans are expected to join the party. Feel free to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets and make a day of it. To get the festivities started, there will be pre-festival kick-off party, that will include a beer tasting and a four course dinner.

Some of the jazz artists performing include:

  • Christian McBride Big Band featuring special guest Melissa Walker
  • Paquito D’Rivera Quintet
  • Jose James

If you’re planning to attend with your family, make sure you check out the Family Jazz Discovery Zone. It’s an educational and fun-filled space for kids to learn about music, improvise and learn some cool dance moves.  There will also be a free shuttle service from select Montclair parking areas.
