18th Annual Gardena Jazz Festival

Sunday, August 22 2021

The City of Gardena hosted its 18th Annual Gardena Jazz Festival, continuing the legacy for almost two decades. Senator Bradford founded the Gardena Jazz Festival, and continues to Chair the Gardena Jazz Festival Committee responsible for putting this event together. This year's setlist includes Eric Benét, Norman Brown, Keiko Matsui, Mike Phillips, and the Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center Jazz Band. To highlight the importance of getting vaccinated against COVID-19, there was a Vaccination van available to vaccinate those who chose to get vaccinated. To allow for social distancing, this year's festival was limited to 7,000 attendees compared to the over 12,000 in prior years.
