The Rosslyn Jazz Festival is coming back with some Grammy-nominated artists headlining the event.
The free festival is planned for Saturday, Sept. 7 from 1-7 p.m. at Rosslyn’s Gateway Park (1300 Lee Highway).
This year, the annual festival will feature:
- Cha Wa, a Grammy-nominated New Orleans brass band
- The Suffers, an eight-piece band featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert
- Leyla McCalla, a singer/cellist
- JoGo Project, a D.C.-based go-go/jazz ensemble
The festival will also include food trucks, a pop-up beer and wine garden, and a visit from the Arlington Art Truck, according to its organizer, the Rosslyn Business Improvement District.
The focus of this year’s musical selections is art and music from the Gulf Coast, the BID said in a press release.
Attendees are encouraged to take the Metro to the Rosslyn station — a five-minute walk from the park — as parking at the festival will be limited.
