East 11th & Red River
Begun in 1989 as the Clarksville Jazz Festival, the 2002 festival continues DiverseArts' tradition of producing one of Austin's oldest jazz music events. Each year, we carry out our mission to present multidisciplinary, family-oriented programs that stress artistic quality, education, and cultural appreciation. Ongoing children's activities, and arts and crafts booths round out the day's diversions. Combined with the cooler October weather, this year's festival is the perfect outing for Sunday relaxation.
The 2002 event is a collaboration of many local nonprofit arts organizations including Epistrophy Arts, Women in Jazz, the Creative Opportunity Orchestra, and Pro-Arts Collective. With DiverseArts founder and executive director, Harold McMillan, these organizations support the vision of a greater jazz future in Austin.
