Jazz in the Pass set for May 26


Pass Christian’s War Memorial Park at 101 Fleitas Avenue will once again be filled with toe-tapping, live music echoing over the Mississippi Sound on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.  The annual Jazz in the Pass returns to Pass Christian on Sunday, May 26, from noon until 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. 

While the musicians are playing, visitors will be able to buy food and drink, as well as browse a selection of craft vendors. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to come and relax under the oaks and enjoy the music.  The event will close with a fireworks display. Outside food and drink is welcome, but those attending are asked to leave all glass containers and bottles at home.

The first Jazz in the Pass was held on May 8, 1999, and the event continued for the next eight years as a way to show support and appreciation to Pass Christian’s musical heritage. The popular event was discontinued after Hurricane Katrina and has returned as a program of Pass Christian Main Street.

Food and craft vendor booth applications are currently available, with registration accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration fee for a 10’ by 10’ booth is $100. Electricity is not provided, but “whisper-quiet” generators are allowed. Vendors may only sell tea and/or lemonade; no other beverage sales are allowed. Booth locations will be assigned the day of the event.
