The Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival has delighted tens of thousands with a host of jazz, Latin, blues, and groove acts. Our communities come out in force—with attendance swelling to 70,000 strong at its height—to enjoy world-class music on three stages, great eats, and good times stretching six blocks in Boston’s historic South End. Families are entertained with face painting, inflatables, photos, and an instrument petting zoo. More than 70 vendors participate, making the Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival the place to be.

The Natixis Family Park, located on
Columbus Avenue between Massachusetts Avenue and Burke Street, features a unique instrument petting zoo, inflatables, face painting, an activity tent, popcorn, slushies, airbrush tattoos, balloon animals, the list goes on. And it's all FREE!

Berklee College of Music, for the sixth year, is the proud recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support the 2015 Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival. The NEA cited the festival as a celebration of Boston’s diversity as reflected in the attendees, music, food, and crafts.
