The Boston Jazz Festival of the Month is Outdoors All day.

Boston’s 2018 Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 on Columbus Avenue at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue in the South End.


The Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival is Boston’s biggest block party—a free, annual, outdoor public concert that has delighted hundreds of thousands of music lovers over the years with its host of jazz, Latin, blues, funk, and groove performances, along with Kids Jam, an instrument petting zoo, and an array of food vendors. Each year, the festival is the place to be in Boston on the last Saturday of September.

Jazz Scene Getaway

  • TOUR: Fabulous Newport and The Gilded Age: ($89)
    View the Detailed Itinerary and self-service booking option A search for the keyword “jazz” at the Discover Newport web portal turns up zip for jazz combo club jams that might be going on AFTER the Newport Jazz festival ended.  But that can’t be right. Well, if you’re into Mansions, let me tell you that the Guilded Age mansion tour above comes with a special treat where you’ll be taken behind the scenes to experience how the servants delivered the goods to the aristocracy back in the day.  Its like a Downton Abbey thingy. Its hard to believe these beautiful places don’t have a live organic jazz trio jamming in there. They probably do. Go see.

Here are 10 of many live jazz events coming up in the region.
