This festival is founded on the premise that W.Va. has woven a rich tapestry of music that includes jazz and blues. Now it’s time to share our treasures and invite the world to enjoy what we have to offer here in beautiful southern WV. Join us August 19th – 21st for the 4th Annual Simply Jazz and Blues Festival, returning to Word Park in uptown Beckley, WV.
We’re proud to feature a free festival, along with some ticketed events. We will provide entertaining educational opportunities for young and old, great food and craft vendors and many venues hosting our Jazz and Blues Takeover of southern WV in the weeks leading up to the festival itself. The 2016 sponsorship opportunities are varied and very flexible; something for every budget. So we hope that you will want to show your support for this unique jazz, blues…and gospel experience that truly reflects the diverse culture of our mountain state!
