This past Father’s Day BJA presented Baltimore Jazz Fest, a free day-long festival that featured some of the best jazz in town. I say the BJA presented, but in reality, this was truly a community effort. When we first presented Baltimore Jazz Fest in 2016, at Druid Hill Park, we also had great support, but it was a big effort for our small organization, and while we tried to repeat it the following year, we really didn’t have the resources to make it happen right away. We kept hearing from people “When are you going to do it again?”, and “How can I help?”, and so when St. John’s Episcopal Church in Waverly approached us with the idea of holding a Father’s Day event on Greenmount Avenue, the Fest was reborn.
