Besides the music, food, and vendors, there will be a Kid’s Zone sponsored by State Farm – Chris Noren, Agent with multiple activities planned throughout the afternoon. Be sure to bring your favorite furry friend to the Dog Area sponsored by Coldwell Banker Gosslee – Shawn Fargerson, Realtor where you’ll find water stations, treats, nail trims, and more. There will be a free shuttle provided by iShuttle, sponsored by Salon Adore, running continuously from Mall St. Vincent and even a free bike valet by Bike Shreveport for those who ride their bike to the festival.
It will be a full weekend of jazz and blues events all benefiting the festival.

Launched in 2003, the festival has grown from a handful of bands and a crowd of 500-1,000 to a gathering including two stages, ten bands, posters, t-shirts, food and art sales, and 10,000 music fans celebrating in Highland’s beautiful Columbia Park. The annual festival is a gift to the community from the Highland Area Partnership doing business as the Highland Jazz & Blues Festival. Proceeds from poster, t-shirt, and beverage sales, donations, and sponsorships are used to bring the festival back each year.
