Jazz it up April 24-26 at the annual Denton Arts & Jazz Festival. The public is invited to enjoy a weekend filled with music, good food, art and many activities for the whole family in Denton. The Denton Quakertown Park, on 32 acres in the heart of downtown, provides the perfect setting for the event that is free to the public.
The Denton Festival Foundation, Inc., in cooperation with the City of Denton and American Federation of Musicians, the Music Performance Trust Fund, produces the festival with support from individual and corporate sponsorships. Over 2,900 musicians, artists and performers attract over 225,000 annually to enjoy the culturally diverse music and art.
Move to the beat at one of 7 stages with jazz, blues and cross-cultural music. Get in the groove and buy a special piece of art from 175 juried artists and crafters. The 12 and under set can mold, draw, sculpt and create at the Children’s Art Tent and make music in the Percussion Tent, then treat yourself to delicious offerings at one of the seven food courts.
