Greenville Jazz Fest

Join us at Greenville's inaugural celebration of community, culture, and jazz, the Greenville Jazz Festival. 

This one day event on Saturday, June 3, 2023 from 4-10 PM will feature music and food to inspire festival visitors to learn and love jazz music.

The FREE event on Main Street will feature national acts, including The Grammy Award-Winning Rebirth Brass Band and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. Additional performances from local jazz groups include: The Tish Oney Jazz Orchestra featuring Greenville Jazz Collective Big Band, Iliana Rose Cuban Jazz Band and The Wheel All Stars.

The inaugural event is a preview of years to come. The City plans to extend the Greenville Jazz Fest to a two-day festival in 2024 with an increased number of performances, expanded footprint across Greenville’s music venues and additional on-site activities and educational opportunities.

The festival’s footprint will stretch outside downtown and bring jazz into the community by partnering with local music venues to host jazz performances all weekend long. Guests can enjoy shows at Horizon Records, Chicora Alley, Blues Boulevard and Rainer’s Café and Bar. The City is partnering with The Greenville Jazz Collective to host JazzEd Sessions leading up to the festival at the Juanita Butler, Nicholtown and West Greenville Community Centers. Children are invited to come and learn more about the rich history of jazz and the instruments used to create the sounds.

A major component to the growing event is music education for our youth. The City is thrilled to partner with Greenville County Schools (GCS) to showcase performances by the All-County Jazz Ensemble, a musical group comprised of 20 students from five GCS schools, as well as the Fine Arts Center Jazz All-Stars.

The festival is welcoming applications for food truck vendors and will be seeking the help of over 50 volunteers. More information can be found at!
