The Jazz-by-the-Bay festival, presented by the Gulf Jazz Society, is the highlight of a year-long series of activities aimed at preserving and perpetuating jazz: America’s Music.
Each year the Gulf Jazz Society stages this two-day free admission jazz festival in the historic St. Andrews section of Panama City, Florida (Oaks By The Bay Park). The event is a collaborative effort with the St. Andrews Waterfront Project, local newspaper, radio and area businesses. The festival features at least five jazz ensembles, with several musicians of national and international acclaim. A family friendly event, the festival includes various jazz musical styles––a good sampling of “America’s Music” including swing, standards, blues, mainstream and jazz vocal.
