City of Alexandria to Host Annual Alexandria Jazz Festival on May 29

­­For Immediate Release: May 3, 2021

The City of Alexandria invites the public to the Annual Alexandria Jazz Festival on Saturday, May 29, from 4 to 9 p.m. at Oronoco Bay Park (100 Madison St.). Admission is free.

The Jazz Festival will feature a variety of musicians and styles of jazz throughout the day. Featured artists include:

  • 4 p.m. - Cubano Groove (bossa nova)
  • 5:20 p.m. - VERONNEAU (contemporary)
  • 6:35 p.m. - Eric Byrd Trio (straight)
  • 8 p.m. - Joel Ross ‘Good Vibes’ (modern)

Due to COVID-19 public health guidelines, attendance will be limited and pre-registration for assigned seating will be required in order to maintain physical distance between parties from different households. Parties will be limited to four people or fewer. Masks covering the nose and mouth will be required for all attendees over age 2. Because space is limited, early pre-registration is encouraged.

Gates open at 3 p.m., and parties must use their assigned entry point. Visitors should plan on bringing a blanket and chairs to enjoy the music from the grass, but must leave umbrellas, tents and pets at home. Attendees are asked to remain in their assigned seating areas unless visiting the restroom or food vendors.
