For the 37th year in a row, the annual Clearwater Jazz Holiday is about to take place.

Ever since its inception, the music festival has continued to evolve from smalltime concerts on the backs of a flatbed trucks around Clearwate,r into the international festival that it is now. Today, the festival attracts well over 30,000 visitors each year. It features a combination of legendary and relevant musical artists and a highly diversified audience, taking place across four days and nights.

On the Thursday of the event, Kool and the Gang and the Commodores will perform. Friday night sees Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band take the stage, with Daryl Hall and the Mavericks following on Saturday, and The Lone Bellow and Houndmouth will finish things off on Sunday.

Along with the performers, there will be a host of food vendors on site, who might benefit from flyers that promote their businesses. Hawaiian Shave Ice, Newts Café, Colonels Kettle Korn, Mr. Bills Fine Foods, St Pete Concessions, Crabby Bills, Holy Hog BBQ, Pipos, and Pete N Shorty’s are just a few of the sundry food vendors that will be present.

All this is happening October 13 to 16 at Coachman Park, just four miles north of Largo. Regular tickets cost $16 for each day, or $52 for all four.
