Every April, Downtown Chandler turns the spotlight on its jazz scene with the return of our annual Chandler Jazz Festival. In celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, the three-day festival hosts a stellar lineup of local talent; spanning genres ranging from traditional and fusion rhythm to smooth jazz. The free, family-friendly festival features hours of live performances across the sidewalks of Downtown. Festivalgoers are encouraged to practice physical distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of all guests.
