This annual festival is presented by the Berks Arts Council in Reading with the purpose of promoting and supporting the arts in the Berks community. A great mission! And it’s only about a half hour drive from the Historic Smithton Inn!

The full list of performing artists is available on the Berks Jazz Fest website, but here are a few of the many talented musicians you can see there:

  • Spyro Gyra and Raul Midon
  • Lalah Hathaway
  • Gerald Veasley’s Midnight Jam
  • Candy Dulfer
  • Keiko Matsui and the Reading Pops Orchestra
  • And many, many others!

Ticket prices vary so see their website for rates. I absolutely recommend ordering in advance so you don’t miss out on seeing the talented artists you’ve got your sights set on.

Get out there and have a great time!
