GRandJazzFest (produced by GR and Jazz)
GRandJazzFest presented by DTE Energy Foundation is West Michigan's only free, weekend-long jazz festival! The festival is the third weekend in August at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids. GRandJazzFest is produced by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all-volunteer-run organization GR and Jazz. Begun in 2012, the festival each year brings to the stage notable jazz performers as well as up-and-coming artists for diverse audiences. The event is family friendly. The central-downtown location is ideal for supporting local businesses, restaurants and pubs, and for visiting other Grand Rapids attractions. The history of GRandJazzFest can be found HERE.
