Jazz Around Town at Lansing's Jazz Fest

By Jane Sugiyama. CREATED Jul 28, 2014

Entering its 20th year, the Lansing JazzFest is a two-day music festival that is FREE to all. This year's festival will take place on Friday, August 1st and Saturday, August 2nd in the streets of Old Town Lansing. 

The festival brings national, regional and local acts to an audience from all across Michigan and surrounding states. JazzFest's music is unique and history in the making. Each of the festival artists are asked to play an original composition, something that hasn't been played at any other festival. 

This year's performers include Glenn Brown & Intergalactic Spiral, Randy Gelispie Quartet with special guest Fareed Haque, RYZ featuring Perry Hughes and Gerard Gibbs and many more! 

Lansing's JazzFest is fun for the whole family. Stroll the streets of Old Town and indulge in local foods. Vendors offer delicious food, beverages, clothing and crafts. 

On Saturday from 1:00PM to 5:00PM, bring the kids to KidzBeat, featuring booths filled with free-face painting, hands-on art projects, and two tents staffed with musicians that are ready to offer hands-on experience on a variety of instruments.
