Purpose: To create a one day place in our city to celebrate Philadelphia Jazz. On this day, we ask Philadelphians to join us answering the question: Is our local jazz history important enough for us to showcase and celebrate with the world?

Take the walk and show the world that it is!

No Rain Date!
