Atlanta Jazz Festival at Piedmont Park 

V-103 and WAOK will see you Memorial Day Weekend at Piedmont Park for the 35th Annual Atlanta Jazz Fest. Whether you like your jazz traditional or contemporary, smooth or eclectic, with big band swing or a Latin beat, there will be something to excite your senses and soothe your soul. This year’s performance schedule includes jazz greats Roy Ayers, Cyrus Chestnut, Kathleen Bertrand, Russell Gunn, Edy Martinez, Ojeda Penn and Johnny O’Neal. Newcomers to the festival include the rhythmic Tito Puente Jr. Orchestra, soulful singer and saxophonist Grace Kelly, and the R&B and hip-hop influenced Robert Glasper Experiment. Admission is FREE.

Here are some do’s and don’ts to remember this weekend. All pets, including dogs, cats, snakes, birds, pigs, etc., are prohibited in parks – leash or no leash – during all festivals, unless part of a planned festival program or assisting persons with disabilities. This is for the pet’s protection as well as for the protection of festival patrons. No horses or ponies are allowed in any park at any time. "
