Jozenji Street Jazz Festival

Cancelled
Free

Featuring 700 jazz bands in an urban outdoor setting, the Jozenji Street Jazz Festival brings the blue note to the streets of Sendai in September 2020.

Held over a weekend, the Festival stretches over a large area of Jozenji Street and surrounds, with the exact location of each act varying slightly each year. Kotaikoen Park, Tsutsujigaoka Park, and Nishikoen Park are three hubs for the festival, but the best plan is to just follow your ears.

Not all of the acts are professional or big names, but all are very good at what they do, and this festival promises a treat for anyone’s ears.
