Chandler Jazz Festival

April 4-7, 2024

Bourbon Street comes to Downtown Chandler each spring for a FREE jazz-filled weekend highlighting the smooth sounds of live jazz music. The hugely popular event has been a must-attend event for jazz fans, drawing people from near and far to enjoy the smooth sounds of jazz with live performances from local and national performers. Visitors and residents alike have embraced the spring festival, celebrating jazz with a variety of music styles and taking in the local culture, arts, and food from the main stage in Downtown Chandler.

Gates for the main-stage performances will open an hour before the first band starting, and attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to make themselves comfortable on the grassy park - perfect for enjoying the Arizona spring weather. It's not uncommon to see a bit of dancing at this music festival which is more like an event than an outdoor concert.
