Join us as we celebrate the Satchmo SummerFest, August 2-5, 2012!  With three days of outdoor concerts, music history seminars, jazz exhibits, a jazz mass, a second-line parade and plenty of local food delicacies and drinks, the festival has evolved into what is becoming known as  “a mini-JazzFest”. Nearly all of the participating musicians are New Orleans-based. There’s even a fun-filled “Satchmo Strut” down Frenchmen Street, taking in most of the nightclubs in the city’s preeminent live music district.

Music all weekend on festival stages featuring traditional jazz, contemporary jazz, brass bands & children’s programming. A sampling of performers who play the festival include Leroy Jones, Jeremy Davenport, Connie Jones’ Crescent City Jazz Band, Yoshio Toyama and the Dixie Saints, The Palmetto Bug Stompers, Shamarr Allen, Rebirth Brass Band, Tim Laughlin, Soul Rebels, Treme Brass Band, Leah Chase, James Andrews, Lars Edegran’s New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra, New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park programming for kids, & more!
