Bring your family and get in the groove! Jazz Family Day will be held at the William G. McGowan Theater starting at noon with a performance by an ensemble from the Jazz Academy of Music. Visitors will learn what jazz has to do with the National Archives, meet the youth musicians, visit an instrument petting zoo, and try other hands-on activities.
Jazz FamilyDay is one of a series of jazz events hosted by the National Archives, with its nonprofit partner the Foundation for the National Archives. The series coincides with the 60th anniversary of the famed Newport Jazz Festival, and includes jazz-related panel discussions, concerts, film screenings, and other special events exploring one of America’s greatest cultural exports.
This event is free and open to the public. Attendees should use the Special Events entrance on Constitution Avenue at 7th Street, NW.
