Longmont Jazz Association Announces 2018 Jazz Festival Lineup

The Longmont Jazz Association has announced the 2018 lineup for the 20th Annual Longmont Jazz Festival. This year’s festival will be held on Saturday, July 21 in downtown Longmont along 5th Avenue. This free, outdoor, daylong concert celebrates the music and culture of jazz.

The Longmont Jazz Association continues its efforts on growing this popular festival into a destination event for the local community, and they are proud to announce Ritmo Jazz Latino, a 2017 nominee for Denver’s Best Jazz Group, as this year’s headliner.

New this year – the festival is moving! The Longmont Jazz Festival has previously taken place in Roosevelt Park, but this year it will be moved to downtown Longmont. The Longmont Jazz Association has moved the jazz celebration into the heart of the thriving Certified Creative District. This year’s festival will be held along 5th Avenue close to restaurants, shops and more!
