This celebration of music and community came back on August 19th, 2023, at the picturesque Salem Willows. As always, our festival aimed to unite us through the power of music, bringing joy and harmony to our vibrant community.

This year, the one-day festival was filled with spectacular live musical performances, enlightening educational workshops, an array of artisan vendors, and a beer tent with local breweries. No matter your age or musical preference, this event had something for everyone!

The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival was a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a passionate commitment to offering music and music education opportunities to our North Shore community. We embraced all, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, orientation, or gender expression, to join us in this grand celebration of life and music.
