The Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival

The 2018 Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018, on Columbus Avenue, west of Massachusetts Avenue, for six blocks to Burke Street.

The Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival is Boston’s biggest block party—a free, annual, outdoor public concert that has delighted hundreds of thousands of music lovers over the years with its host of jazz, Latin, blues, funk, and groove performances, along with KidsJam, an instrument petting zoo, and an array of food vendors. Each year, the festival is the place to be in Boston on the last Saturday of September as the community comes together in a bond forged in the joy of great live music.

The festival offers world-class music on three stages, phenomenal food and drink, arts, crafts, and unique gifts. We look forward to seeing you for Boston's best free outdoor concert.

In addition to the Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival, Berklee hosts many events and concerts that are free and open to the public throughout the year. Information about these events may be found at
