Yoshidamachi Art & Jazz Festival

In late April every year, the main area of Yoshidamachi is cleared for the entire afternoon and evening for a street event titled “Yoshidamachi Art & Jazz Festival”.
Under the slogan “Make art more lighthearted and accessible”, various art-related programs are organized every year, including art workshops for children and a street market with 80 or more artists who exhibit their original works for sale or trade.


The event also features live sessions performed mainly by local jazz musicians and occasionally by blues bands that enrich the cultural life in Yokohama night after night. Come and indulge in their sophisticated musical conversations and be mesmerized by their kaleidoscopic world of spontaneous improvisations.
