On Saturday, June 4, 2022, 100,000 people will gather along Welton Street in downtown Denver for the anticipated return of the Five Points Jazz Festival. Those attending will experience a safe, sustainable, family fun event. At the forefront will be jazz music and the many hard-working and talented local jazz musicians featured on 11 outdoor and indoor stages.
Five Points Jazz Festival is brought to you by Denver Arts & Venues, which uses revenue from events at City venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Denver Performing Arts Complex to make this cultural event and many others possible and to improve access to art, music, and culture for all.
This free festival takes place annually 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!
