Jazz Lady by artist Barbara Hranilovich

Jazz Lady by artist Barbara Hranilovich – 2016 JazzFest Poster.

The 22nd annual Lansing JazzFest will take place Friday, August 5 and Saturday, August 6, in the streets of Old Town, surrounded by the best of the Capital City’s art galleries as well as unique retail stores and grand architecture. Its stages will offer outstanding talent, from local favorites to regional and national acts, including many appearing for the first time in Lansing.

In celebration of our poster art, Jazz Lady by Barabara Hranilovich, many of our performers will be wearing red dresses and we encourage our guests to wear red too!

Join the roughly 7,000 people from across Michigan and nearby states who come for the music, but also the great food and craft vendors, expansive beverage tent, children’s activities, River Boat rides and more!

Lansing JazzFest continues to grow thanks to the contributions of its sponsors and volunteers.  Plan now to be a part of the 2016 festival — Support Old Town, Lansing, and live jazz!

Please take a look at our mural in progress that showcases a history of JazzFest and BluesFest posters in Old Town Lansing here.
