JazzFest Falmouth


Our sincere apologies. JazzFest 2017 has been cancelled.  See you next year.


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 ten years ago to bring nationally known artists to town and to showcase the rich reservoir of local and 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 2017 there will be music around town from September 30th to October 7th. A highlight of the festival is the free Friday night JazzStroll on October 6th, an evening promenade along Main Street where a dozen groups entertain in restaurants and shops along the way – all free and a chance to tap your feet at music you recognize, and some you don't.

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 7,  brings the headliner event, a ticketed concert at Highfield Theater. In 2016, Karrin Allyson, multi-Grammy nominee captivated our audience in 2016, Watch this space to see who will be performing in 2017.
