The 24th annual Capital Jazz Fest takes place June 3-5, 2016 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland and will feature nearly 30 national acts on two big stages. Out of all the years that this event has taken place, this will be the first time that Maryland’s own Toni Braxton will grace the stage of an event that has become synonymous with the DMV.

The Pavilion Stage will feature contemporary jazz and adult contemporary artists, whereas The Symphony Woods Stage showcases soul music artists from the old-school and the new. This year’s talent lineup includes New Edition, Toni Braxton, En Vogue, Tamia, SWV, The Isley Brothers, Lalah Hathaway, Will Downing, Eric Roberson, Kenny Lattimore,  and many more, plus our annual “Catch A Rising Star” showcase of up-and-coming artists.
