Cool jazz returns to Provincetown in one of Cape Cod’s best music events of the summer: the Provincetown Jazz Festival, August 9 and 13, 2018.
Now in its 14th year, the fest has gained a reputation as a mecca for top jazz talent from across the United States and internationally. This year is no different, featuring notable performers who will be making their festival debut.
The Provincetown Jazz Festival was begun by local musician Bart Weisman in 2005 and every year since, attendance has grown. Now it’s a coveted event for music lovers, and a favorite venue for performers. This year, the concerts will be held in two different locations, one in Provincetown; the other at the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
