FIVE POINTS JAZZ FESTIVAL
2019 FIVE POINTS JAZZ FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY, MAY 18.
This free festival takes place the third Saturday of May every year and celebrates the history of Denver’s Five Points neighborhood.
Once known as the Harlem of the West, Five Points was home to several jazz clubs which played host to many of jazz music’s legends such as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and many more!
Help us make the 2019 Festival a success. We are seeking volunteers for short shifts throughout the day. Volunteer with friends, co-workers or family to add more fun to your day!
