The annual Austin Area Jazz Festival showcases the importance of art, our love for the Austin area, the impact of diverse cultures, and of course, the best in smooth jazz. We bring together legendary national acts with talented up-and-coming musicians. The result is always a great show, and a musical experience that is second to none! 

The 2018 Austin Area Jazz Festival is a great way to kick off your holiday season. With performances by Damien Escobar, Chanté Moore, Gerald Albright, Jeff Lorber Fusion, Nick Colionne, and Althea Rene, this is going to be a show you do not want to miss!
