Friday night at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival celebrates the true culture of jazz as Downtown Eau Claire transforms into a jazz nightclub scene. 52nd Street is a re-creation of the historic 52nd Street of New York City, where jazz greats like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and Louis Armstrong sat in with different ensembles in a variety of nightclubs, simply because they loved to play jazz. Over 50 bands play at multiple venues (all-ages and 21+) along Barstow Street in downtown Eau Claire, featuring a variety of music styles, including ragtime, blues, acoustic, and big band. It's an exciting night of live music downtown - you never know who might bring their horn to sit in! Join over 3,000 people to enjoy this once a year party!


*Clancy's, The Dive, Stone's Throw, The Firehouse, and The Mousetrap are 21+

**The Oxbow Gallery and The Lakely are 21+ after 10pm


The full schedule can also be found by downloading the phone application "Guidebook" and searching for Eau Claire Jazz Festival or by going here





*All spots for 2019 are full*


The Eau Claire Jazz Festival's 52nd Street was started in 2013 as the brainchild of Artistic Director Robert Baca. Robert's vision was to recreate the energy and vibe of the jazz mecca that was New York's Historic 52nd Street. Read more about the history of New York's 52nd Street.
