The 15th annual Wooster Arts Jazz Fest will be held on Saturday, September 15th in historic downtown Wooster from 11:00am to 6:00pm. The all-day event will include live jazz on several downtown stages and art vendors of every variety. Experience jazz of all styles and a New Orleans Dixie Land Parade led by The River City Jazz Band at 2:30pm. The kids can participate in the children’s hands-on art station and the whole family will enjoy a chalk art gallery, balloon twisting, and juggling stilt walkers. Grab a bite at the Jazz Café on the square or the many downtown Wooster restaurants.

The event is presented through a partnership of Main Street Wooster, the Rotary Club of Wooster, Wayne Center for the Arts, Wooster City Schools and the Boys & Girls Club of Wooster.
