|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until September 19, 2021 12:00 am

Ohio’s best blues and jazz return to Gahanna for a weekend at the 2021 Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival, Sept. 17-19, 2021. Sales for general admission and reserved tables will begin on Friday, June 18.

“We made the decision to hold the event in September, as opposed to its traditional third weekend in June, to allow for more time for vaccinations and to ensure safety protocols are in place,” said Lori Kappes, Executive Director for Visit Gahanna. The 2020 Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival was canceled due to COVID-19.

According to Kappes, the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival’s steering committee is implementing several changes to this year’s event which include a modified footprint to best manage crowd capacity and two live music stages.

“After having to cancel last year’s Creekside Blue & Jazz Festival, we are thrilled to bring this tradition back to Gahanna’s beautiful Creekside District in 2021,” said Kappes.

Kappes added that the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival plans to return to its traditional June date and format in 2022.

Daily admission to the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival is $15 and a weekend pass is $40. Youth admission is $10 and free for children 5 and under. This year’s Festival will also sell reserved tables at the Toyota Direct Blues and Heartland Bank Jazz stages that seat 2-6 people. Festival hours are Friday, Sept. 17, 5-11 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 18, 2-11 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 19, 12-5 p.m.
