Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont

June 1st, 2012

The line up of talent has just been announced this week for the popular Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont.

Start making your travel arrangements for August 10-12 to enjoy all the fun! Every year, the festival draws in large international talent and this year is no exception. Richmond native and jazz legend Lonnie Liston Smith will kick off the event on Friday evening at the newly renovated Hippodrome Theater along with other local artists. Indie Arie, a two time Grammy winner will continue the festival at Maymont on Saturday.  Over 20 other amazing artists will grace the two stages as well serenade everyone with the sounds of jazz, R&B and neo-soul.

While you are there enjoying the beautiful music, stop to take a look at the breathtaking gardens and grounds at Maymont. We suggest packing a picnic and grabbing a blanket to enjoy all of the sights and sounds of the weekend. The event does have an entrance fee and tickets can be purchased here, where you can also check out the full line up of artists.

See you soon,
