Join us for the 6th annual New York Hot Jazz Festival. After yet another sold out edition, the hot jazz and swing party of the year returns to the spellbinding McKittrick Hotel and once again features three stages (one of them hidden on a mystery train) with continuous live music from 16 ensembles and multiple special guest artists for 12 hours. The Fest will feature NOLA-style Second Line parade to commemorate the tricentennial of Crescent City, Antique Gramophone DJ, and a raucous Midnight Speakeasy after party with the Fest's storied jam as well as dancers and performance art acts to cap the night's festivities. Celebrating trad jazz with rising stars and legendary performers, the Fest will showcase the best talent of the global hot jazz and swing revival with the music spanning the entire breadth and scope of early jazz from the beginnings in New Orleans through the Roaring '20s and Prohibition and well into the Big Band Swing era. Prizes await those who deck themselves in their vintage best. So dress to impress and get ready to party your night away! Dancing is encouraged and inevitably irresistible.

The 5th anniversary edition of the Festival is dedicated to our infinite source of inspiration, the great Vince Giordano, who will be a recipient of the first New York Hot Jazz Festival award for lifetime achievement.
