Cost: Free
The Atlanta Jazz Festival celebrates its 42nd anniversary with 31 Days of Jazz, featuring established and up-and-coming acts, culminating on Memorial Day weekend with two full days of performances in Piedmont Park. This year’s lineup brings an adventurous mix of artists to the stage including composer and trombone virtuoso Delfeayo Marsalis, gospel vocalist Lizz Wright, and rising Chicago-based percussionist, beat maker, producer, and sound collage artist Makaya McCraven. On Sunday, the Meadow stage features a lineup dedicated entirely to Atlanta artists, headlined by Russell Gunn and the Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra performing a piece inspired by the pyramids of Egypt. Boasting everything from international jazz superstars to hometown acts looking to make a name for themselves, the Atlanta Jazz Fest is one of the best free tickets in the city.
