JazzFest Falmouth

The October JazzFest Falmouth marks one of the high points of the town’s year-round celebration of the arts. This musical extravaganza was founded eight years ago to bring nationally known artists to town and to showcase the rich reservoir of regional talent for residents and visitors.  You’ll hear soloists, combos and wall-to-wall brass bands playing every genre of jazz: from hot to cool, oldies to cutting edge, sultry to stomping. 

For 2016, there will be music around town from September 28th to October 2nd. A highlight of the festival is the free Friday night JazzStroll on September 30, an evening promenade along Main Street when a dozen groups entertain in restaurants and shops along the way – all free and very social! 

Other events during the festival - concerts, talks, brunches, art exhibits - add to the festivities. Every year it is different, and every year it is exciting.

Saturday night, October 1,  brings the headliner event, a ticketed concert at Highfield Theater. In 2015, Denise Donatelli, multi-Grammy nominee, and nominated again last year for her new cd - Find a Heart, captivated our audience, Watch this space to see who will be performing in 2016.
