 “This festival is a tribute to the great jazz musicians from the Philly area past, present, and future, in particular John Coltrane, whose birthday (September 23, 1926), falls very close to our third weekend in September format,” said Executive Producer Warren Oree. It is also designed to draw attention to one of the most historical and culturally rich corridors in Philly—-South Street! It’s also important to note that festivals stimulate not only culture and social interaction….but also propels the economy, both in the community and citywide.”

In addition to music all day, craft vendors will be selling their unique items. Surprise guests are scheduled throughout the day. The festival is free and open to the entire family.
