Celebrating 39 years of musical mastery, the festival returns to historic Piedmont Park with three days of music over Memorial Day Weekend. The Atlanta Jazz Festival is the perfect way to spend Memorial Day Weekend with family and friends. Audiences will enjoy a wide spectrum of styles from traditional straight-ahead jazz, Latin jazz and swing  to jazz flavored with neo-soul, hip-hop and R&B. Experience the stellar swing of saxophonist Benny Golson, soak up the sensuous stylings of Eliane Elias, and groove to the soulful rhythms of Jamison Ross. The festival offers music every day in May and culminates with the huge final weekend in Piedmont Park.  National and international musicians will perform on two stages. Admission to the festival is free.  Festival hours in Piedmont Park are Friday, May 27 from 6pm - 11 pm; Saturday, May 28 from 11am - 11pm and Sunday, May 29 from 11 am - 11 pm.
