The 2012 Reedy River Jazz & Wine Festival will be held on Friday, May 4th at The Huguenot Mill Loft at The Peace Center.

The Reedy River Jazz and Wine Festival was designed to soothe the soul and excite the palate. All at the same time. The beautiful, relaxed setting of the Peace Center Amphitheater provides the perfect backdrop to kick back and enjoy some of the finest regionally and nationally acclaimed musicians as they put their passion on display. Add in delectable foods, amazing wines and a worthy cause, and you have a jazz festival Upstate audiences can really embrace. And help support and grow for years to come.

All proceeds from the Reedy River Jazz and Wine Festival will go to support The Ronald McDonald House here in The Upstate. RMH provides a “home away from home” for the families of critically ill or severely injured children being treated at area hospitals. It’s a place of hope and encouragement during an unpredictable time in their lives and the lives of their children. We’re truly honored to support this worthy cause.
