Festival Detail

Sacramento Music FestivalMusic

On every Memorial Day weekend since 1974, Old Sacramento and other downtown venues have drawn a horde of jazz fans to the Sacramento Music Festival (formerly the Sacramento Jazz Festival and Jubilee), the top jazz festival in the West. Sponsored by the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society, the event features a lineup that includes about 70 bands from all over the US and overseas. It is one giant party as the sounds of jazz, blues, zydeco (and related styles) permeate Old Sac and the downtown area. Specialty concerts and events are always planned.

Festival has a children/youth component.
