Seville Square Will Be Filled With Hot Crafts and Cool Jams At Jazz Fest 2014
By: Kelly Woodard
The 31st Annual Pensacola Jazz Fest hits the streets of historic downtown Pensacola’s Seville Square next Saturday and Sunday, April 5th and 6th. Presented by the Jazz Society of Pensacola (JSOP), the 2 day event celebrates the soulful and unique musical art of all types of jazz.
This free two day event is held from 10 am–6:30 pm in a lovely park setting. With its sprawling lawn and shady oaks, Seville Square Park also offers music lovers a state-of-the-art sound system so the music can be enjoyed anywhere you sit in the park. In addition to some of the best musical jazz acts around, the Pensacola Jazz Fest will also feature food, drinks and jazz merchandise.
The music will include a variety of jazz styles, presented by prominent national, regional and local artists, as well as local college and high school jazz bands. There is even a “Kids Jam with Harmonicas and Kazoos” each afternoon for the children so they can get musical creativity flowing.
The Arts & Crafts Exhibition allows vendors to present a variety of art items, including paintings, photographs, pottery, jewelry, and various other one of a kind pieces.
JSOP will have designated merchandise areas for the purchase of Jazz Fest posters, a variety of jazzy shirts and memorabilia, plus beer, wine, and soft drinks in order to raise money for the festival. Some seating is provided, but it is recommended that you bring your own folding chair and sunscreen. Dogs are prohibited in the park.
All performances will take place in the Seville Square Gazebo.
