From Friday, March 13 to Sunday, April 19, you’ll have an opportunity to check out local
musical and artistic talent, and even take part in educational events, at
multiple locations throughout Reading, PA.

For the past 25 years, the Berks Arts Council in Reading has
been featuring the Berks Jazz Fest as a way to support and promote the arts in
the Berks community. What better way is there to help people of all ages see
the beauty of the visual and performing arts than by showcasing local talent?
And great for out-of-towners, venues are only about a half hour drive from the
Historic Smithton Inn.
Just a few of the many performers at various venues are
listed below. For a full list, visit
the Berks Jazz Fest website
Dance Hall Docs
Randy Hanson
Dianne Reeves
U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors
Tedeschi Trucks Band
Jessy Carolina and the Hot Mess
And so many more!
Don’t miss out on the fun. I highly suggest getting
your tickets in advance, so you’re guaranteed spots at these exciting events.
Prices for performances vary, so refer to the lists of events on their website for more
information. Some performances are free!
There is always something for everyone, so you are bound to
have a blast at this year’s jazz festival!
