The Tallahassee Jazz & Blues Festival is an educational event held on-site at the Tallahassee Museum. Its
primary purpose is to provide our members and visitors with an additional educational and cultural experience to
supplement our ongoing mission. The Jazz & Blues Festival enables our visitors to experience our cultural

musical events in this area regardless of genre.
