The festival will present over 20 bands and guest artists both regional and national.  The majority of the regular festival attendees and sponsors are drawn from around US, Canada and international locations.  A grant from the City of Clearwater has made it possible to extend jazz festivities for the public all week long around the City of Clearwater.

Dance floors are available near the musicians for dancers who enjoy their music doing the Lindy Hop or East Coast Swing.  On Friday night, one ballroom has a larger swing dance floor for the Swing Dance Party from 7 PM to midnight, which begins with an hour of instruction by the Swing Time Dancers.

Festival bands are highly entertaining spanning traditional jazz, big band, swing, zydeco, banjos, rockabilly and more. 

On November 15th, the Festival along with the Central Park Performing Arts Center will present Louis Prima Jr. (separate ticket required).

Youth bands from area High Schools will also perform in accordance with our support of area youth musicians.  As a 501(c)3 organization, the Festival provides substantial scholarships and educational events benefiting young musicians in our community.
