The Eau Claire Jazz Festival celebrates the true culture of jazz as Downtown Eau Claire transforms into a jazz nightclub scene. 52nd Street is a re-creation of the historic 52nd Street of New York City, where jazz greats like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and Louis Armstrong sat in with different ensembles in a variety of nightclubs, simply because they loved to play jazz.  Over 60 bands play at indoor and outdoor venues along Barstow Street in downtown Eau Claire, featuring a variety of music styles, including ragtime, blues, acoustic, big band, indie, funk, soul, pop, hip-hop and more. It's an exciting night of live music downtown - you never know who might bring their horn to sit in!  Join over 3,000 people to enjoy this once a year party!
