A WEEKEND WHERE COOL JAZZ and R&B COLLIDE......
THE 2019 CAPITAL JAZZ FEST

Don't miss the 27th Annual Capital Jazz Fest that will be loaded with head-turning performers!!

Each year in early June, tens of thousands of music lovers from throughout the country flock to the suburbs of Washington, D.C. to attend this weekend of hot fun, Cool Jazz and R&B. This multi-day, multi-stage outdoor music festival, attracts music lovers from 44 states and is more than just a concert - It's An Event! It's a place to people-watch, eat, drink, shop, mingle, relax, soak in the rays, and of course hear some of the coolest music! In-between musical sets, you can enjoy fine art and crafts at the Festival Marketplace, culinary treats at the food court, plus artist workshops and meet & greets.  After the show, check out the late night after-parties. There is no better way to start your summer! In 2017, all Black Sense attendees had an unbelievable good time and we plan to make 2018 even better! So book early because space will sell out quickly!

TICKET UPGRADES
 
Our packages include General Admission tickets for all concerts, however, we know some of our guests would like to to upgrade their tickets to Pavilion Seating. With that in mind, if you would like to upgrade to the Pavilion, please advise Black Sense when purchasing your package. We can only guarantee that your tickets will be in the reserved section you purchased (ie  Main or Loge) but not an exact seat number; but we try our best to get the tickets closest to the stage.

Our recommendation for those purchasing tickets in the Pavilion is to get Main Seating tickets because they have a better direct view of the stage. Pavilion tickets do sell out quickly and we will let you know the cost of upgrading your ticket once prices are posted by the Capital Jazz Fest.

Pavilion Ticket Type
 
Loge Pavilion Upgrade - TBA  (Loge seating is located in the far right and far left side of the Pavilion - Sects. 203, 204, 303, 304)
 
Main Pavilion Upgrade - TBA (Main seating is located in the center of the Pavilion - Sects. 200, 201, 202, 300, 301, 302) 
 
Floor Pavilion Upgrade - TBA (Floor seating is located directly in front of the stage in the Pavilion - Sects. 100, 101, 102)
