The Steel City Jazz Festival was founded by Chris Ferguson and Emily Milko after returning from a trip to the 2012 Detroit Jazz Festival. Maybe it was the result of riding high after seeing both Wayne Shorter and Sonny Rollins perform in one weekend, but Chris and Emily decided to give throwing a jazz festival a try. Preparations started right away and on August 22nd, 2013 the first annual Steel City Jazz Festival began.
The 5th Annual Steel City Jazz Festival will take place October 24-29, 2017. If you have any questions or comments about the festival or would like to make inquiries about artist bookings, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
