The week-long Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival culminates this Saturday, September 26, with a free, outdoor festival in Boston's historic South End neighborhood
The festival runs from noon to 6:00 p.m., featuring three music stages spread over six blocks on Columbus Avenue, at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue.
In addition to a stellar line-up of music, the festival offers fun activities for the whole family as well as an opportunity to learn more about jazz, musical instruments, and some of the city's jazz clubs, educational courses and vibrant scene.
More than 80 vendor booths will offer arts, crafts, accessories, and great food representing a variety of countries.
"This festival is a testament to Boston's reputation as a music hub and its dedication to jazz and producing and nurturing great artists," says Terri Lyne Carrington, BeanTown Jazz Festival artistic director. "As a native and recent returnee to the area, I'm thrilled for this chance to give back to the community by throwing a big party for Boston. I hope people come out to fraternize with their neighbors, enjoy the delicious food, and hear some incredible music."
