CreeksideBluesJazzFestival

The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival is a three day cultural celebration featuring hundreds of musicians, delicious cuisine, artisans from the region, amusement rides and engaging family activities. The event started fifteen years ago as a one day dedication of Gahanna’s new Creekside Park area and the beginning of Olde Gahanna’s revitalization. The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival has experienced unprecedented growth in attendance and has truly become more than the celebration of music, food and fun; it has become a premiere family summer event.

Artists will be announced on their website. Last year Cindy Bradley with the Urban Jazz Coalition performed on this event.
