Chandler Jazz Festival

Bourbon Street comes to Downtown Chandler each spring for a FREE jazz-filled weekend highlighting the smooth sounds of live jazz music. Typically held in April, 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 take in the local culture, arts and food from the main stage in Downtown Chandler.

Gates for the main-stage performances typically open about 30-minutes prior and attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to make oneself 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.

Visitors will find plenty of free parking options in Downtown Chandler and it's easy to extend your outing by including a visit to one of the many Downtown Chandler restaurants, cocktail bars and boutique shops located in and around the historic square. 

Arriving from out-of-town, visitors will find that many Chandler, AZ hotels provide a courtesy shuttle to Downtown Chandler.  However, there are two hotels situated in the downtown area, both are located a short walk from the main stage - the Crowne Plaza Phoenix Chandler Golf Resort and the Hilton Garden Inn Chandler Downtown.
