About the Music
The Lewiston Jazz Festival offers a wide variety of jazz styles. Our "rising stars" of the twenty to thirty something age group, will grab you with their emerging interpretations of this musical genre. Our more seasoned musicians will perform jazz tunes that span six decades of straight on-jazz, latin jazz or pop-infused favorites. In between we have solos, trios and big bands. It's all about jazz here but there's enough of a variety to make you want to see every single performance.
CD's of artists featured at the Jazz Festival can be purchased at the Lewiston Music Store on the corner of 4th and Center Street just behind the Main Stage.
Fabulous Food and Wine
In addition to hearing some hot jazz, visitors will have the opportunity on Friday night and Saturday to taste some very cool food as the region's finest chefs come out of their kitchens and onto the street to showcase their culinary talents, offering everything to delight your palate... from grilled ravioli to rice balls to greek souvlaki to traditional WNY Beef on Weck. To whet your appetite, a selection of wines from the Niagara Wine Trail will be available for your enjoyment.
