Four drummers lead their own groups at Conor Byrne Pub on the opening night of the festival.
Guitarists take the stage on night two of the festival as we showcase some of the finest six-string talent from the Northwest and beyond.
Jazz takes over downtown Ballard as we present 17 groups in 12 venues all for a single ticket price. The most recognizable event of the festival brings together all styles of jazz and a New Orleans atmosphere with listeners pouring from club-to-club making this a truly one-of-a-kind event.
On Saturday, we kick off a full day of events at 11:00am with the Swedish Pancake Jazz Brunch and a classic Volvo and Saab car show.
The crown jewel of the festival, we welcome international jazz artists to Ballard at our Mainstage Concert at the Nordic Heritage Museum at 7:30pm.
