September 14, 2018
The Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival gets underway Saturday, Sept. 15, in Old Webster. The event features an electrifying lineup of the region's best local jazz, blues, funk, rock and soul musicians performing on two stages.
In addition to live entertainment, plenty of great food and drink will be provided by area restaurants. Many of the district's unique shops will be open.
"This year's festival is like a wedding, merging a selection of our favorite bands from previous years with new performers who have caught our attention. We'll finish with perennial blues favorite Marquis Knox and his special guest, Barbara Carr," said Brian Ward, musical director for the festival.
For 18 years, the festival has attracted more than 12,000 fans annually. Music stages are located in the heart of Old Webster. The festival was organized 18 years ago by a small group of passionate music-lovers who wanted to have a great party in the downtown district.
