Once a year, the New Bedford waterfront is awash in sounds having nothing to do with its legendary fishing scene. On June 13th, jazz will sweep over a tent-covered pier in the 9th Annual New Bedford JazzFest, featuring national and local musicians and singers from 2pm to 7pm. 

The JazzFest features two stages of nonstop diverse music. Beyond the live music performances, there will be a selection of food trucks, a full bar, and an “Artists’ Colony” curated by the New Bedford Art Museum, where patrons can browse and buy the work of local artisans. 

Tickets are as follows:
$15 until May 31st
$20 until June 7th
$25 after and at the door
*Children 15 and under, when accompanied by an adult, are free*

Tickets can be purchased via this website, or at the following locations:
Your Theatre (call 508-993-0772)
Symphony Music Shop (North Dartmouth)


JazzFest is produced by and for the benefit of Your Theatre, Inc., New Bedford’s 73-year old community theatre group. YTI has partnered with Waterfront Historic League (WHALE) to purchase, restore and convert 149 William St. (First Baptist Church) into a permanent home and community arts center. Proceeds from this event will assist in this partnership to preserve vital historic architecture and provide a lasting home for NB’s longest running community theatre. www.yourtheatre.org

See you there!
