The annual Atlanta Jazz Festival is on one of the country's largest, entirely free jazz events. For the past forty years during the month of May, jazz burst out of the doors of restaurants, clubs, museums, parks, and churches all around the city. The event all culminates in the three-day festival of performances in Woodruff Park at the end of the month over the Memorial Day weekend. Musicians at the festival join the company of intenationally celebrated jazz artists such as Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Hugh Masekela, and Dr. John, all of whom have performed there.

Venue: Woodruff Park

Date: 26 - 27 May 2018
