All of Downtown Scranton will serve as center stage for an award-winning music festival as the 16th Annual Scranton Jazz Festival (SJF) returns to the Electric City!

This year's event features a new format, reminiscent of a New Orleans-style festival. Instead of utilizing one, large main stage, performances will be held in multiple venues throughout the Downtown. Featuring national, regional, and local musicians, SJF fans will enjoy the extensive variety and unique experience they have grown to expect, and love.

 

Tickets?... not this year! Yep, you read that right...SJF will be TICKET FREE this year! In lieu of tickets, please consider making a donation to help our amazing artists and offset the cost of production. 

 

JAZZ FESTIVAL FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR
Saturday 9 PM

A fireworks display presented by Scranton Tomorrow and Lackawanna County will add to the celebration on Saturday at 9 PM. The display will be launched from the Electric City Garage in the 300 block of Spruce Street.
