HarborPark Jazz, Rhythm & Blues Festival
The HarborPark Jazz, Rhythm & Blues Festival is one-day regional music festival that takes place on a Saturday in August on Kenosha’s lakefront. Premiere jazz and blues music can be expected, as well as great food and drinks.
The festival – which started in 2005 – draws visitors from Milwaukee, Chicagoland, and beyond. It showcases our beautiful lakefront and highlights our community’s dedication to the arts and cultural activities.
The HarborPark Jazz, Rhythm & Blues festival is a major annual fundraiser for the Mahone Fund, which provides educational opportunities for economically and academically deserving youth, while also supporting healthy lifestyle initiatives in communities of color. Created in 1999 to perpetuate the legacy of local social justice leaders and education advocates Mary Lou and Arthur F. Mahone, the fund is a component of the Kenosha Community Foundation.
