ALEXANDER CITY JAZZ FEST

For 26 years the Alexander City Jazz Festival has been a draw to music fans from all over the nation.

 

JazzFest will be held on June 9-10 in 2017 with Friday nights show in Stand Park in downtown Alexander City and Saturday night being hosted at The Amp.

 

The Jazz Fest has rocked East Central Alabama with jazz, blues and southern rock for the past 26 years. The jazz festival’s 27th anniversary in 2017 promises to uphold the tradition with extraordinary acts. We will release the dates and line for the Jazz Festival in early 2017.

 

The Jazz Festival got its start in 1990 as part of a birthday celebration for Frohsin’s Department Store in downtown Alexander City. Ralph Froshin Jr. celebrated the 100th birthday of his family’s store with live music in what is now called Broad Street Plaza. Alex City residents have maintained the tradition ever since.

Over the years as the festival gained notoriety, it outgrew its original location. The music attracts nearly 10,000 people to Alexander City every year.
