Each year in June, tens of thousands of music lovers from throughout the country flock to the suburbs of Washington, D.C. to attend “the jazz festival with soul”: The Capital Jazz Fest. Started in 1993, this outdoor festival, which attracts music lovers nationwide, is more than just a concert, it’s an event! It’s a place to people-watch, eat, drink, shop, mingle, relax, soak in the rays, make new friends, and of course hear some of the coolest music on the planet!
In-between musical sets, enjoy the juried craft vendors at the Festival Marketplace, culinary treats at the food court, and meet & greet the artists. And after the show, check out the late-night events at our host hotel.
