George Gershwin, an American composer and pianist, once said, “Life is a lot like jazz…it’s best when you improvise.” Life doesn’t always go the way we want it to but can we tell you what cures all downs and lows? A trip to Cape May, NJ! Music is also food for the soul so when the two can be combined, you have a trip made in heaven. The Exit Zero Spring Jazz Festival is coming up soon and we do not want you to miss out!

Twice a year, this jazz festival takes Cape May by storm and music can be heard everywhere throughout the weekends. Whether in restaurants and clubs along the beachfront, parades in the street, or on headlining main stages, the level of music at this festival is bar none. The talent and quality of events has made the Exit Zero Jazz Festival one of the most respected and popular in the country. This spring, it will be taking place April 12-14.

If you are coming into town for this event, we encourage you to get a festival pass as it will provide the best bang for your dollar. You can choose from weekend or single day options. Of course, all festival concerts can be purchased a la carte as well. You can obtain a festival pass in the Cape May Convention Hall.
