Denton’s long-running arts and jazz festival has reached its 32nd year and now over 200,000 people are expected at the electrifying fest. Award-winning headlining talent Lee Ritenour, Los Lonely Boys and Brave Combo will entertain the masses for this free festival that is fun for music lovers of all ages.
Jazz it up April 27, 28 and 29 for great music, good food, beautiful art and many activities that are open to anyone. The Denton Festival Foundation, Inc., in cooperation with the City of Denton and the Dallas/Fort Worth American Federation of Musicians, produces the festival with support from individual and corporate sponsorships. Over 2,700 musicians, artists and performers attract over 200,000 annually to enjoy the culturally diverse music and art.
Seven stages contain jazz, blues and cross-cultural music. Get in the groove and buy a special piece of art from 175 juried artists and crafters. The 12 and under set can mold, draw, sculpt and create at the Children’s Art Tent and make music in the Percussion Tent. Join in the pride of Denton and the celebration of music and arts tradition, all showcased for a weekend of enjoyment for the whole family.
For festival attendees traveling to Denton, take DART and the A-train and avoid traffic and parking congestion. Riders who take the train to the festival on 4/27 or 4/28 can also take their DCTA or DART train ticket stub to the Main Stage Souvenir Booth to receive a free Arts & Jazz Festival Favorites CD, while supplies last.
In addition, the DCTA is sponsoring a canned food drive to benefit the Denton Community Center. Festival attendees are asked to bring a canned food item to the DCTA booth and will receive a free regional day pass to use any time.
