Join headliners Taj Mahal and the Phantom Blues Band, the Ravi Coltrane Quartet, and the Brave Combo at this year’s Denton Arts and Jazz Festival April 26-28. Musicians take over seven stages to bring you the best of modern and classic jazz music, and local and national artists set up booths to showcase their creations, from sculptures to paintings to photography. There are kids activities such as a rock climbing wall and arts and crafts, and vendors serve delicious food from around town in each of six food courts. This massive festival draws more than 100,000 attendees each year and has become a community tradition for people from Denton and all across Texas.
