Jazz Crawl

Jazz Crawl will be on Friday, April 24, 2020!

Sponsored by:


Friday night at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival celebrates the true culture of jazz as Downtown Eau Claire transforms into a jazz nightclub scene. Jazz Crawl was created to pay homage to 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. 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 celebration of live music!

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. Through an organizational rebrand in 2019, the event was renamed to Jazz Crawl.
