Jazz Pensacola's annual events are highly anticipated. Each year, we host a student jazz competition with cash prizes for student winners and a free jazz festival.
Student Jazz Competition
In lieu of the March Jazz Gumbo, Jazz Pensacola hosts our annual Student Jazz Competition, where we welcome middle school, high school, and college students from the tri-county area to compete for cash prizes in various divisions. Learn more about the student jazz competition here!
Each year, typically on the first weekend in April, Jazz Pensacola hosts a free 2-day long Jazz Festival in Seville Quarter. Featuring 2 days of regional and national headlining acts, hand selected art vendors, food vendors, and beer and wine, this festival is a hallmark of Spring in Pensacola.
