The dates are drawing closer for the spectacular and major Jazz Music event in the DC area called DC Jazz Fest. The festival is a highly attended event and there will be over 100 performers and bands bringing a wide variety of Jazz music to those attending. Global performers as well as local ones will be offering both ticketed events as well as many free performances. The festival officially begins on June 5th and concludes on June 16th with performances at locations and venues all over the DC area.
One event that should not be missed is the Jazz 'n Families Fun Days which is designed to help stimulate interest in music in the young members of the family. This event actually takes place prior to the official start of DC Jazz Fest on June 1 and June 2. All events are free. There will be performances as well as an Instrument Petting Zoo for children so that they can get up close and personal with a wide variety of musical instruments.
