JOIN THE FUN!

Register for the 5k run kicking off at 10AM, enjoy the awards after the last finisher, then stay and watch The Central Mass Jazz Fest and their incomparable Passion for Jazz and the Arts!

We believe jazz isn't just a genre of music. Jazz is a unique art form, and culture rooted in a freedom of expression and life style. We would be nothing without our talented team of performers, volunteer crew members and behind the scenes gurus who make sure that every performance goes off without a hitch. It’s truly a labor of love, and we’re so excited to have it come to life. 

We hope you will join us in this amazing, inclusive community event!
