Downtown DC Bid

Jazz and Blossoms

Jazz & Blossoms is a free outdoor music extravaganza that will blend the sounds of Grammy award-winning hip-hop trio Digable Planets along with the eclectic sounds of Daylight DC, Madison McFerrin, JoGo Project, and the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra, creating an atmosphere that resonates with the spirit of spring.

Produced by Words, Beats & Life in collaboration with the DowntownDC BID, this event promises an unforgettable fusion of jazz, blossoms, and the lively spirit of spring.


What began with a gift in 1912 at the Tidal Basin is now a four-week extravaganza spanning Washington, DC, and neighboring communities in Maryland and Virginia. From exciting events to convenient hotels, delectable Cherry Picks restaurants, vibrant Art in Bloom installations, and a jaw-dropping City in Bloom to joyful Petal Porches, see the Washington, DC area as you can only see it once a year!
