Festival Music is a Big Deal
32 performers on 3 stages
Music is a big part of the Festival experience. We have 3 stages featuring 32 regional and local acts. The Manieri Endowment sponsors a weekend of Jazz on the 10th Street Jazz Stage. Highlights include the Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra and ever popular Pearl Django on Saturday - plus Nearly Dan (a 12 piece Steely Dan tribute band) on Friday evening. If Jazz is not your thing, the Main Stage on 3rd Street and Port Stage on the dock have a varied lineup of sounds including local talent John Van Deusen, Miller Campbell, Old Town Tonic and Marcia Kester. Music closes out the Festival on Friday and Saturday evenings. Each of our stages has a beer (or wine) garden adjacent, so it's possible to enjoy multiple pleasures at once!
