Arts Focus: Rosslyn Jazz Fest Returns and Expands (Sept. 1-18)

Jazz is back in Rosslyn with a three-week celebration of music, food and fun!

The Rosslyn BID’s annual Rosslyn Jazz Fest has been reimagined with live performances around the neighborhood, culminating in an all-day event in Gateway Park on Sept. 18, featuring Three Man Soul Machine, Aaron Myers and Sin Miedo.

Enjoy the soulful sounds of local musicians, including Crush Funk Brass Band, Akua Allrich, Kingman Island Orchestra, and Cristian Perez, live from some of Rosslyn’s favorite outdoor venues. Plus, attendees can expect themed giveaways, prizes and restaurant deals throughout.

Beginning on Sept. 1, don’t miss pop-up performances from bands and soloists at Central Place Plaza, Continental Beer Garden and more. Jazz fans can also look forward to the return of last year’s popular Jazz Supper Club experience at Amuse at Le Méridien Arlington.

Rosslyn Jazz Fest is brought to audiences in partnership with Arlington Arts. For more information on Jazz Fest, please visit and sign up for the Rosslyn BID’s newsletter at
