Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival
Ohio’s best blues and jazz return to Gahanna for a weekend at the 2021 Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival, September 17-19, 2021. Sales for general admission and reserved tables will begin on Friday, June 18.
“We made the decision to hold the event in September, as opposed to its traditional third weekend in June, to allow more time for vaccinations and to ensure safety protocols are in place,” said Lori Kappes, Executive Director of Visit Gahanna. The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival 2020 has been canceled due to COVID-19.
According to Kappes, the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival steering committee is implementing several changes to this year’s event, including a modified footprint to better handle crowd capacity and two live music stages.
“After having to cancel last year’s Creekside Blue & Jazz Festival, we are excited to bring this tradition back to Gahanna’s beautiful Creekside district in 2021,” said Kappes.
Kappes added that the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival plans to return to its traditional June date and format in 2022.
Daily admission to the Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival is $ 15 and a weekend pass is $ 40. Admission for young people is $ 10 and free for children 5 and under. This year’s Festival will also sell reserved tables on the Toyota Direct Blues and Heartland Bank Jazz stages that can seat 2 to 6 people. Festival opening hours are Friday September 17 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday September 18 from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday September 19 from noon to 5 p.m.
