In its 19th year, the festival continues to bring a range of versatile talents spread out over several venues for maximum enjoyment. A full schedule of performances is on the DCJF website atdcjazzfest.org.

“We’re calling it a jazz takeover,” said Sumter, “We’re in more than 12 neighborhoods. It’s cross-generational with so much diversity and inclusion. Everybody is welcome to the party.” 

Several free DCJF concerts are scheduled at The Parks at Walter Reed.
