Now recognized as one of the region’s premier jazz events, the Lake Arbor Jazz Festival is returning to beautiful Lake Arbor in Mitchellville, MD for our 7th annual event!

Come and enjoy four days of non-stop contemporary and traditional jazz music featuring some of the DMV’s and the nation’s finest jazz and R&B groups.

This year’s Festival will kick off with our Thursday, July 7th Evening Pre-Festival Jam Session followed by our signature VIP Summer White Gala & Live Performance on Friday, July 8th at Martin’s Camelot in Upper Marlboro, MD.  Saturday’s Festival on July 9th is packed with performances by local and national artists and ends with a star-studded After-Party and Jam Session at Stonefish Grill in New Carrollton. The Festival weekend wraps up with something for your heart and soul — a delectable Sunday Gospel Jazz Brunch on Sunday, July 10th at the Greenbelt Marriott! It really doesn’t get any better than this and all right in the heart of our own Prince George’s County!
