GRandJazzFest presented by DTE Energy Foundation is West Michigan’s only free, weekend-long jazz festival! The 4th annual festival is Aug. 15 and 16, 2015, at Rosa Parks Circle, a central location in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. The 4th annual GRandJazzFest will bring to the stage notable jazz performers as well as up-and-coming artists for diverse audiences. The event is family friendly. Book a hotel room if you’re from out of town and make a weekend of it! Bring folding chairs, blankets and snacks, and get ready to relax for a couple of hours or for the whole weekend! The central-downtown location is ideal for supporting local businesses, restaurants and pubs, and for visiting other Grand Rapids attractions.
