5th International Jazz Day Celebration

Rocky Point Jazz Festival – 5th International Jazz Day set for April 22 & 23

Rocky Point Jazz Festival, April 22 & 23.

Rocky Point Jazz Festival

In 2002, the Smithsonian Institute determined April as Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM), and then in November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated April 30th as International Jazz Day.

Jazz was born in the US and traveled the world as a music of tolerance, freedom and human dignity. This is why UNESCO created International Jazz Day. This event reminds us Jazz is more than music.

This year the 5th International Jazz Day will be celebrated at  Malecon Fundadores. Headlining the event will be Nayo Jones, along with Carlos Rivas and his Mex-Sal orchestra, among other local and international artists. So let’s unite, communicate, and enjoy some beach diplomacy by taking in festivities to honor International Jazz Day right here in Puerto Peñasco with two nights of jamming under the stars, April 22nd and 23rd.
