EVENTS: 2018 Five Points Jazz Festival: THIS Saturday, May 19th

Buckner Funkin’ Jazz – One of the outstanding bands at the Five Points Jazz Festival

The free festival takes place the third Saturday of May and celebrates the history of Denver’s Five Points neighborhood. Once known as the Harlem of the West, Five Points was home to several jazz clubs which played host to many of jazz music’s legends such as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and many more. Come out to Five Points to enjoy this free festival of music, food, culture and fun.

Since its inception in 2004, the Five Points Jazz Festival has grown each year in size and popularity. In 2017 we saw attendance increase to over 40,000 and 41 bands performed throughout the course of the day. The 2018 festival is shaping up to be our best one yet!
