Festival Details - "2-Day Jefferson Street Jazz & Blues Festival"...

The summer of 2018 welcomes the 18th Annual Jefferson Street Jazz and Blues Festival (JJBF) celebrating the vitality of the Jefferson Street community through its arts, music and food culture. This 2-day event, brought to you by the Jefferson Street United Merchants Partnership (J.U.M.P.) builds cultural awareness, attracts diversity and commemorates the historic Jefferson Street Corridor through the sounds of jazz, blues, funk, gospel, soul and R&B. Not just a music festival, this event pays homage to the historic treasures and challenges that make the Jefferson Street community a unique and vital part of Nashville. Vendors will line the street offering a selection of food, cocktails and merchandise while festival-goers are entertained by the sounds of Nashville’s hottest artists covering jazz, R&B and blues.


The weekend kicks off on Friday, June 15, with the Bridging the Gap Mixer: SoBro Block Party. For the second year in a row, the SoBro Block Party will be downtown on 5th Ave S. and Demonbreun.
