Over 80,000 patrons joined us at DC JazzFest at The Wharf. A record setting festival included The Wharf and in DC neighborhoods through Jazz in the ’Hoods.  Thousands caught the water taxi from Georgetown to the Wharf; or checked out Anacostia and the Big Chair for East River JazzFest; or visited Buzzard Point to the CapitalBop Series. Many celebrated at the Ivy City's City Winery, Ivy Smokehouse,  or headed downtown to  The Hamilton Live or Frankin Park. We also got our jazz on at U street with Twins Jazz, BIN 1301, Ben's Next Door, and JoJo's. There was something for everyone!
