Wooster Arts Jazz Fest on September 16

Bring the whole family to historic downtown Wooster on Saturday, Sept. 16th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to enjoy live music, a juried fine arts festival, mouth-watering gourmet food, a New Orleans style jazz parade, juggling stilt-walkers, and a variety of free art activities for children at the Kids Creation Station.

It is a day for all ages to enjoy; there is something for everyone!

This year marks the fourteenth annual festival, and it will feature live performances by a variety of bands and musical groups including Savoy Big Band, River City Jazz, David Gerald, Zydeco Kings, Blu Monsoon, and assorted individual performers.

The mission of the Wooster Arts Jazz Fest is to promote arts and education in our community and economic development in downtown Wooster through a quality arts event.

The Wooster Arts Jazz Fest is presented through a partnership between Main Street Wooster, the Wooster Rotary Club, Wayne Center for the Arts, and Wooster City Schools with Boys & Girls Club of Wooster.

In addition to providing a free, quality arts event suitable for all ages, the Wooster Arts Jazz Festival supports, through private and corporate sponsorships, arts education in the schools, economic development in downtown Wooster, and the Wooster Rotary Club’s college scholarship program for area students.

Dozens of juried artists from Ohio and surrounding states will line the downtown area selling paintings, photography, glass, ceramics, jewelry, woodturning, basketry, and other fine art and craft media.

Join chalk artists as they create beautiful drawings, on a large scale, on the streets in downtown Wooster. Kids and adults can do their own chalk art in the neighboring area.

Be sure to stop in and feast on the specialty gourmet foods sold by area restaurants and food trucks in the Jazz Café. Free children’s activities for kids of all ages will be available throughout the day.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 16, 2017 for the Wooster Arts Jazz Fest!
