The Bakersfield Jazz Festival has become a wonderful two-day celebration for the community that has been called Bakersfield’s “Rite of Spring.” The 29th Annual Festival will be on Friday and Saturday, May 8 and 9, at the CSUB Amphitheater, and this year’s festival, organized by Doug Davis, is brought to you by the CSUB Music Department and the presenting sponsor BMW of Bakersfield, whose six year commitment has certainly given the festival a solid boost.
