Get ready on Saturday, March 8 to enjoy a great jazz festival in the perfect setting for the final time—the Landmark Event Center in Des Moines, also known as the Old Masonic Home.
The Landmark has been sold and it is unlikely it will continue as an event center.
Burien Arts Association’s Sixth Annual Highline Classic Jazz Festival from 2:30-10 p.m. will offer 14 bands playing on three separate stages.
The musicians will perform a wide variety of jazz styles including early and mid-20th century jazz, from Dixieland, Gypsy Jazz, Blues, Western Swing, Ragtime, Big Band Swing and cool Latin jazz as well as Straight Ahead Jazz classics.
This great jazz experience includes concerts, dancing, food, drink and an opportunity to mingle with the musicians.
The unique festival also features FREE Swing and Latin dance instruction. Get ready to show off your new moves as you dance to the great bands following the clinic.
Festival director Lance Haslund is sad to be losing the venue.More ›
