Jazz Quest Kids Area

JazzFest isn’t just for adults.

The Sanford Children’s JazzQuest will be a JazzFest hot spot for children 12 and under! JazzQuest is a fun and safe kids-only zone where children have opportunities to learn about music, play and create hands-on art projects. As a reminder we do not allow smoking or alcohol in or near the kid’s area.

JazzFest is proud to again partner with the Washington Pavilion of Arts & Science as they help kids learn about space science with interactive art and science projects and activities that are sure to be out-of-this-world!
