Free Northwest Jazz Fest

This year’s annual Heart & Soul Fest comes as the city has purchased the Prohibition-era Sunset Lounge as a focal point for reviving West Palm’s historic Northwest neighborhood. The free jazz festival takes place Saturday, April 16, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Rosemary Avenue and Eighth Street, across from the Sunset.

The headliner, Pieces of a Dream, will bring contemporary jazz sounds from Philadelphia. Also performing will be N2 Nation, a South Florida band that celebrates the magic of Motown. The festival also features family activities such as arts and crafts, and neighborhood vendors selling food. For more information, visit or call 561-822-1550.
