The four-day Winter Blues Jazz Fest is back for its 10th year! It will take place January 12-15, 2024. Our Festival home this year will be The William and Mary Alumni house again. We'll have a dedicated lounge for our VIP weekend pass holders, with complimentary water, soft drinks and snacks. Another cool space will be for all attendees and will feature jazz on the big screen and a place to chill out between events. We will have a fully stocked bar for the entire weekend with themed cocktails.


Our over-riding goal is to provide an enriching and entertaining weekend full of Music and educational programs with options available to suit all tastes and budgets.

The Winter Blues Jazz Fest has a little something for everyone.

We will kick things off on Friday, January 12th at the William and Mary Alumni House at 7pm. The amazing No BS Brass will be our opening night entertainment. Followed by one of our always sold out late night events featuring two options, The Jason Cale Band and Cats Eye with Miss Melanie.

Saturday, January 13th, brings us a morning workshop. We are bringing back the very popular Big Bluesy with music in the round by Vexine on one stage and Johnathon Ellison on the other stage. Following that will be our main evening event with the Alfredo Rodriguez Quintet. Once again we'll have our late night events, tonight we'll have two, one with Jordan Ponzi Trio at Culture Cafe and the other with Harry Wilson at the Alumni House.


​​Sunday, January 14th, we have our amazing Sunday Brunch. This year we'll have it at the William & Mary Alumni house with local favorite, Good Shot Judy.

​Our afternoon entertainment is brought to you by both Hot Lanes and Bobby Blackhat, that will be followed by the Bio Ritmo Sunday evening. Culture Cafe will be creating a scrumptious pre show supper so don't miss out on that. Tickets sold seperately.


The festival this year will spill over to Monday, Martin Luther King Day. This tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. event is free and open to the public.
