Savannah Jazz Festival 2019
Updated: Aug 2, 2019
Time to get jazzy!
The Savannah Jazz Festival 2019 will bring America’s indigenous art form back to downtown Savannah for its 38th year. This is a week-long program from September 22 – 28 featuring award-winning musical acts in venues throughout the historic district in 27 free performances! No, not a typo - FREE.
Local, national, and international musicians will perform in venues including the Lucas Theater (Sep 22; $10 admission), Mansion on Forsyth Park (Sep 23), Rancho Alegre Cuban Restaurant (Sep 23, 24, 26), and the Ships of the Sea Museum (Sep 25; $10 admission). Click here for the full schedule.
The event culminates with three free evenings at Forsyth Park and (what I’m most excited about) ‘after-hours’ jam sessions around town on Thursday through Saturday (Sep 26 – 28). I felt cooler just typing that.
For a first-class experience during the evenings at Forsyth Park, you can purchase VIP tickets which include hors d’oeuvres, two drink tickets, and seating with great views of the stage. VIP tickets start at $65. Two words: Date. Night.
Jazz on, friends.
