The 9th annual Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival (PIJF), presented by Citizens Bank, is a labor of love for the August Wilson African American Cultural Center.

People from around the world who speak different languages, but share a common love for jazz, are invited to spend the weekend in Pittsburgh.
 


 

Everything at the August Wilson Center is rooted in the complexities and brilliance of African American culture and the African Diaspora. PIJF is committed to celebrating cultures of the world and connecting the notes that make us one; we welcome everyone to celebrate with us.
 


 

Don’t miss the entire fun-filled weekend with a Jazz Crawl at Downtown bars and restaurants, The Taste of Jazz Kick Off Party, a Craft Beer Garden, a jam session, food trucks and world-renowned artists like Patti Labelle, Stanley Clarke, Joey Defrancesco, War and the Black Women Rock Musical Tribute to Betty Davis.
 


 

Over one hundred local artists will be performing as well, featuring Roger Humphries and Sean Jones. For more information about the entire weekend of festivities and artists go to: Pittsburghjazzfest.org.
