Monroeville Jazz Festival

Please join us for The Monroeville Foundation’s very own Jazz Festival. A tradition that has spanned more than two decades, Monroeville Jazz Festival is a one-day, free concert that the whole family can enjoy. This live performance will take place on Saturday, September 2nd from 2:00 PM - 8:00 PM at Tall Trees Amphitheatre, where people of all ages will listen to music from talented performers at our beautiful outdoor venue. Few things unite people like music; so come make friends, dance, enjoy the outdoors, and soak up quality time with the local community.
