The Jacksonville Jazz Festival is a weekend of Jazz that is the “second-largest jazz festival in the nation” according to Superpages and that, according to the Jacksonville Times-Union, has been dubbed by “experts” as “one of the 20 best in the nation.” The event in Jacksonville, Florida, USA is sponsored by the city, and the entertainment events take place throughout downtown.


The festival includes The Great American Jazz Piano Competition which takes place at the Florida Theatre on Friday evening of the festival weekend. The winner plays a featured set at Metropolitan Park. During the Art at the Met concert in Metropolitan Park, the audience can view the work of prize-winning artisans and master craftspeople from around the nation while listening. Art mediums can include: Clay, Digital, Drawing, Fiber, Furniture, Glass, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Painting, Sculpture and Wood. The wine tasting event titled 38° Latitude: A Wine Tasting Experience is another favorite pastime at the festival. Patrons may purchase a “Tasting Ticket” for entry to this special experience and receive a souvenir wine glass and eight samplings of more than 50 featured wines. Attendees have an opportunity to speak with winery representatives or to purchase bottles that they may consume at the Park. Food & drink, arts & crafts, souvenirs & music are available for purchase from vendors within the park, and Sunday Jazz Brunch is available in Metropolitan Park, typically from 11:00am to 1:00pm. When the performers for the upcoming festival are announced, there is also an induction ceremony for the Jacksonville Jazz Festival Hall of Fame to honor people who have made a positive impact on jazz in Jacksonville. An official poster has been created each year for the festival.
