The Festival presents world-class jazz in many styles, including swing, bebop, Dixieland, big band, Latin, and contemporary. During the week-long festival, held in October each year, music is performed by jazz greats as well as fresh, up-and-coming young talent. Performances are staged in several venues around Amelia Island including Fernandina Beach Golf Club, The Sandbar & Kitchen, Tortuga Jacks at Sliders Seaside Grill. The Lakeside at Amelia Island, Story & Song Bookstore, Bistro, and OMNI Hotels & Resorts Amelia Island Plantation. The goal of the Amelia Island Jazz Festival is to help preserve the American art form Jazz by increasing the exposure and awareness of the music genre to the general public.
