The Austin Area Jazz Festival (AAJF)  is an annual event that shows 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 will take place on November 24, 2018 at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.
