Big Band Jazz Festival

2018 Festival

Jazz on the Prairie Big Band Festival

Every year in mid-June, we sponsor a free jazz concert in the park featuring six of the best amateur big bands in the city. The location is Staring Lake Park in Eden Prairie. The first band kicks off at 2PM and the fun continues until dark, or the mosquitoes take the stage. There is usually barbecue ribs for sale if that helps out. Map it here.

Tenative List of Bands for 2018 (Times to be determined).

Look for more info to be posted about the uncoming 2018 show.


The concert is sponsored by the city of Eden Prairie and KBEM FM88.5, the local jazz radio station.

This is actually a picture of the band playing in Hopkins but it was the only photo I had at the time.
