Just Another Day In SouthLA

17th Annual Central Ave Jazz Festival

If you missed today make sure you come tomorrow, Sunday, July 29.  Come out to Central Avenue at 42nd Street in South Los Angeles in front of the historic Dunbar Hotel. The Dunbar Hotel plays a large role in African-American history in Los Angeles as it is where jazz greats like John Coltrane and Billie Holiday stayed when visiting the City of Angeles.

The Jazz Festival is a unique cultural event that pays tribute to the significant contributions that African Americans made on Central Avenue. Central Avenue was the birthplace of west coast jazz and was nationally recognized as a jazz hot spot from the 1920s to the 1950s. The Jazz Festival is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of jazz and African American Heritage. This weekend long event is free and open to the public, and will feature live music, craft and food booths, company-sponsored booths, and information government/non- profit booths. It promises to be an exciting weekend full of fun and community pride that I hope you will be a part of.
