Jazz in the Streets 2023
Thanks for another year jazzing up the streets! We're looking forward to the summer of 2024 to bring more jazz and pizazz to Portsmouth. If your city is interested in welcoming jazz to the streets, please contact us to discuss details and dates!
The streets are alive with the sound of Jazz! Dance on by or sit and listen to bands at our three jazz locations: Market Square, Vaughan Mall, and by the tug boats (down the hill from the intersection of Ceres St & Bow St) from 12:30 to 2PM.

In an effort to bring live jazz music to the community, each summer the Seacoast Jazz Society sponsors outdoor jazz performances in downtown Portsmouth, with the goal of expanding this program to other seacoast communities. The musicians are all professional jazz musicians who donate their time and talent to increase awareness and enthusiasm for this very special artform.
