Berks Jazz Fest 2020

January 1, 2020

The Berks Jazz fest 2020 is back and better than ever! The 30th annual edition will take place March 27th-April 5th, 2020. The spotlight will be on Reading, PA where there will be several concerts by some of the biggest names in the music biz.

This is not a festival in the traditional sense, where you go to one venue and all of the artists perform on one or two stages. These are actually individual concerts and you can choose the artists that you want to see.

 The concerts will take place throughout Berks County at various venues, including small churches and clubs, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Reading, the Santander Performing Arts Center, the Miller Center for the Arts and the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  There will be something for everyone, as you will be able to listen to  contemporary jazz, traditional jazz, pop, crossover, blues, funk, R&B, gospel and some uniquely creative collaborations.
