Showcasing a robust lineup of dynamic musicians – from homegrown talent to Grammy Award-winning artists – the Don’t Miss A Beat Jazz Festival at Woodstock Park invites families, couples and music-enthusiasts alike to enjoy an exciting combination of performances specializing in traditional jazz, Latin jazz, funk, and soul with the community as the heart and focus of the event. In addition to outstanding musical performances, attendees of the family-focused event will enjoy access to delicious offerings from local food vendors, inspiring work from the artistic community, as well as the PNC Children’s Tent – featuring a bounce house, children’s stage and more.
“Delivering on our vision to create opportunities that provide local residents with access to high quality performing arts,” said Ulysses Owens Jr., Artistic Director at Don’t Miss A Beat. “We’re excited to program a jazz festival that is free and open to the community, while featuring some of the best local talent in Jacksonville alongside international and national headlining artists.”
To kick-off the Don’t Miss A Beat Jazz Festival at Woodstock Park, participants of the DMAB Broadway Experience: Summer Edition – a six-week summer camp that exposes youth to the power and freedom of the arts – will take the stage at 11:30 a.m. to perform their production of “In The Heights” by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of “Hamilton” the musical. Culminating the end of this summer’s program, the annual summer camp is DMAB’s longest running program, and supported by the community of donors and grants from Kid’s Hope Alliance.
