This four day festival, held annually over the Labor Day weekend, features the biggest names in the business. Artist-in-Residence and master pianist and composer, Chick Corea performs Friday and Saturday nights, Chris Dave and the Drumhedz shows up Sunday, and Cécile McLorin Salvant performs Monday. With five stages, four days, and different musical styles, this Festival remains relevant, vibrant, and beloved. Do not miss it.
