Five Points Jazz Festival is brought to you by Denver Arts & Venues, which uses revenue from events at City venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Denver Performing Arts Complex to make this cultural event and many others possible and to improve access to art, music, and culture for all.

This free event has taken place annually since 2004 in the historic Five Points neighborhood. From its humble first year which featured only three bands, the festival has grown into a day-long event with 100,000 visitors along Welton Street enjoying a culturally diverse experience of music, food, shopping, and entertainment. Residents and visitors groove to the sounds of smooth jazz to bop to swing to funk to blues throughout the day. Throughout the years, the festival has showcased local staples such as Hazel Miller, Buckner Funken Jazz, Jakarta, Conjunto Colores, Purnell Steen, JoFoKe aNem, and Wil Alston, as well as nationally and internationally known musicians such as Dianne Reeves, Ron Miles, and Invisible Bird. It’s a fun, uplifting day for friends and families to come together to enjoy a piece of Denver’s legacy in jazz music.

Once known as the Harlem of the West, Five Points was home to several jazz clubs which played host to many of jazz music’s legends, such as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and many more!

Stop by the KUVO booth! We would love to see you.
