The Detroit International Jazz Festival (also known as the Detroit Jazz Festival) is a jazz music festival held each year over Labor Day Weekend at Hart Plaza and Campus Martius Park in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.. It is the largest free jazz festival in North America. Until 2000, it was known as the Detroit-Montreux Jazz Festival.
The festival again changed names in 2005, becoming the Detroit International Jazz Festival after Ford Motor Company removed its sponsorship. In January 2006, Gretchen Valade, Chairman of Mack Avenue Records founded the Detroit International Jazz Festival Foundation, which took over production and management of the festival.
Detroit Jazz Festival set for August 30 – September 2, 2013.
