Ballard Jazz Festival
May 17 - May 20
Running from May 17th to the 20th, the Ballard Jazz Festival features both local musicians, and international talent. While this year’s performers have not yet been announced, last year’s headliners were the esteemed, New York-based tenor saxophonist Chico Freeman, and the George Colligan Trio. Ballard is already a hub of arts, culture and incredible eats—hop over from a fabulous meal at Brimmer and Heeltap to an incredible jazz performance at the festival’s mainstage, in Seattle’s Nordic Heritage Museum.
