Atlanta Jazz Festival 2017


It's more or less a fact that you can't go wrong with free jazz music. Produced by the city's Office of Cultural Affairs, the Atlanta Jazz Festival is a month-long celebration featuring both established and up-and-coming acts in the genre, culminating Memorial Day weekend with performances in Piedmont Park. From International jazz superstars to local artists looking to make a name for themselves, the fest might be one of the best free tickets in any city.
