Clearwater and All That Jazz
The Clearwater Jazz Downtown Party tonight (Oct. 12) serves as the kick off to the Clearwater Jazz Holiday that opens Thursday (Oct. 13) and runs through Sunday in Coachman Park.
CLEARWATER – It’s the event jazz lovers wait for each year – the Clearwater Jazz Holiday.
The Clearwater Jazz Holiday is a four-day and four-night, world-class, live, music festival, enjoyed by more than 35,000 people the third week of every October and now in its 37th year.
The music festival has evolved from a series of concerts on the back of a flatbed truck and at venues around Clearwater into an annual, international, music festival that draws tens of thousands of visitors each year to Coachman Park, 301 Drew St., Clearwater. The festival features a combination of legendary and relevant musical artists and a gathering of an amazingly diverse fan base.
