Detroiters Jazzin on Jefferson

Jazzin’ on Jefferson first shut down the streets in 2004 to bring jazz, blues, food, arts and crafts, and other activities to Detroit’s lower Eastside. Since that time, it has grown to a two-day long event that draws over 18,000 people. This event brings the community together to celebrate the rich history of the neighborhood and highlight the work that is being done to create its future. Jazzin’ on Jefferson features a number of local including YNN reporters Morgan and Kendyll Lavant. Jazzin’ on Jefferson is produced by the Jefferson East Business Association, a 501©3 non-profit dedicated to revitalizing the residential and commercial area along East Jefferson Avenue. Funds raised through Jazzin’ on Jefferson will support the economic and community development services JEBA offers, particularly the Clean Jefferson and Safe Jefferson Initiatives. The vital services that JEBA provides are helping to rebuild East Jefferson into a cleaner, safer more sustainable and viable place to live, work, and invest.
