Main Street Murfreesboro is going all-out to make this a special community event that will be enjoyed by all ages. Over 10 food vendor trucks and a Kids' Alley around the square that are full of interactive fun for children.

“Main Street is excited to host a smaller version of the annual JazzFest event this year, focusing on our student jazz bands who haven’t been able to perform in over a year," says Executive Director Sarah Callender. "We are thrilled to have over eight student bands and three professional, local bands performing from noon through the evening.  It will be a fun event for families to come downtown and take part in, with food trucks, an interactive Kids’ Alley featuring hands on musical activities sponsored by Ridenour Music, and downtown shops open for you to shop."

"I am excited about the pre-show music workshops for both preschool and elementary aged children and also high school and adults this year," Callender noted.  "There is an educational component as well as an entertainment offered at this year’s JazzFest.  We are thankful for our presenting sponsors First Bank and T-Mobile along with many other sponsors who helped cover the expenses of JazzFest, allowing Main Street the ability to offer this fun music filled day free to our community.”

She concluded, “Based on CDC guidelines Main Street is asking the public while at JazzFest to distance themselves six feet from others who don’t live in your household. Please bring your own chairs and sit in groups with those who you came with, allowing space from others sitting near you. We recommend a mask when walking around crowds, getting food, and standing in line for the restroom.”
