In celebration of the music scene in Denton, every year there is a local Jazz Festival showcasing the talent of local jazz bands, dance groups, school bands/choirs, and of course, the UNT Jazz Bands.

The Festival lasts three days, starting Friday afternoon and continuing into Sunday evening. This year’s festival was held April 28th through 30th.

“Though the festival is centered around a singular genre,” says FHS senior and festival attendee Sabrina Tionloc, “there was a vast array of art and musical acts that each offered their own unique incorporation and interpretation of the element of jazz.”

Denton is an eclectic city which is proudly on display among the concert-goers. From college students to families, there was something for everyone. Other than the seven stages showcasing the performing talent of Denton, the festival also had a large supply of food available, entertainment for children, and vendors selling their goods, such as the Tie Dye Guy’s tent.

When asked about her experience at the festival, FHS senior Dom Malpica exclaimed, “Ya like jazz? I like jazz.”

Overall, the Denton Jazz Festival encompasses the music of the town, never going over the top, like Denton’s Oaktopia music event, which occurs every fall.

The Denton Jazz Festival is for the people and remains a chill environment of relaxing jazz, bringing everyone together to sit in the grass and enjoy the what the city and its musicians have to offer.
