USM Gulf Park’s Jazz Fest this Weekend

This weekend, Coast music lovers will be able to hear the smooth sounds of New Orleans jazz without even having to cross state lines.
USM Gulf Park will be hosting their annual Smooth Jazz and Blues Festival on Saturday. This year’s festival headliner will be Stooges Brass Band, an elite brass band out of New Orleans. Before they take the stage, many other great jazz and blues musicians will share their musical styling with the crowd.
From 10 until 6, campus representatives invite everyone out, young and old, to grab a lawn chair, head to campus and enjoy the festival. This year’s festival entertainment will include much more than just music. USM Gulf Park Vice President Dr. Steve Miller said, “It’s a great event. We hold it every year. It’s our largest community event. We try to get everyone to come for this. Great music, a lot of local foods, crafts, vendors that are all local, big Easter egg hunt for the children, it’s a great way for us to reach out and get the community involved in our beachfront campus.”
Admission into the festival is free.
