Get out your lawn chairs and picnic blankets as the Worcester Jazz Festival takes over Worcester Common! What better way to spend a fall afternoon than a day filled with the sounds of Jazz Legends– as well as some of the area's up-and-coming Jazz artists– performing in this fantastic setting outdoors on the Worcester Common at City Hall.
The Worcester Jazz Festival features Local and International Touring & Recording Artists along with Arts & Craft Vendor Booths, Food Trucks, a Wine & Beer Tent, and Face Painting & Balloons for the kids, making this an event the entire family can enjoy.
