The family-friendly Lancaster Avenue Jazz and Arts Festival in West Philadelphia, organized by People’s Emergency Center, will return on Saturday, July 20.
It's free to attend and will feature a full day of live music in Saunders Park Greene from noon to 7 p.m. This year's headliners are Bootsie Barnes and Sam Reed, who are both Philly guys.
The theme for 2019 is "Hometown Philly Sound of Jazz," so attendees will hear from all local musicians.
In addition to the headliners, other performers include Jamal Jones & the Bureau of Sonic Wonderland Jazz Orchestra, Glenn Bryan and Friends, Geri Oliver, Chris Oatts and Jonathan Michel.
The Universal African Dance and Drum Ensemble will also be back by popular demand.
In addition to music, the festival will include artisan vendors, food trucks, face painting, a pop-up computer lab and bounce house.
Free parking is available one block away from the park at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center's lot at Powelton Avenue and State Street.
The festival will take place rain or shine.
