Event Hours
Daily from 10:30am - 8pm

DC JazzFest is coming to The Wharf! For more than a decade, DC JazzFest has enriched and educated the DC community on this important genre—and given it a great excuse to get outside in nice weather and enjoy live music. You’ll find DC JazzFest concerts and events all over the city in June, but The Wharf will host more than 20 acts on the weekend of June 16. Come out to hear local and international jazz musicians grooving, improvising, and blowing us away.
