The Easthampton Jazz Festival was born from the wish to expand the already vibrant jazz community in the region. Easthampton has been experiencing an arts revival, and part of this is an expanding music scene of which jazz has become an integral part. The Easthampton Jazz festival will feature some of the best of both regional and national jazz performers. The festival will feature local, and regional musicians as well as workshops. There will also be performances by local school and college groups. Music starts at 12pm in Eastworks and moves to Easthampton High School at 6pm.
