    August 14 - August 16, 2015


    34th Annual Flint Jazz Festival


    Note:  Riverbank Park, will be closed this summer for renovations.

    For 2015, this festival will be produced at The Meadow, located on the campus of the Flint Cultural Center August 14 – 16, 2015.  The Meadow is just north of the Flint Institute of Music, east of I-475, south of Robert T. Longway Blvd.  “The whole area is clean and the grass is plush. Large trees will provide shade from the hot August sun.” states Greg Fiedler, President & CEO of Greater Flint Arts Council (GFAC).


    No “built-in” seating - so patrons: please bring lawn chairs and/or blankets.

    The Flint Jazz Festival has been a gated event for the past three years and this area will be gated-off for admission only.



    Friday, August 14 is $5 which includes a pass for the whole weekend. (Headliner: NAJEE)

    For those who do not attend Friday (and don’t have a weekend pass)

    Admission on Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16 will be $3 each day.


    The festival schedule includes a variety of performances by locally known, regionally known, and internationally known musicians. “Come early and see them all,” states Fiedler. “You will be impressed by the caliber of our local and regional musicians who play early in the day.”
