Nestled among historic buildings on the streets of Webster Groves, the Webster-Kirkwood Times presents the eighth annual Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival (OWJBF). This year the free, award-winning, family jazz and blues fest celebrates the music and cultures of Louisiana. Like the state's signature dish, gumbo, this year's festival offers a spicy stew of diverse ingredients from the Big Easy. Stroll street side shops, devour delicacies, and tune in to jazz born in Louisiana and the soulful holler of blues that was first sung in the Mississippi Delta.
Located just 10 miles southwest of St. Louis, Webster Groves has hosted this melodic Midwest jaunt for the last seven years. On
Saturday, September 20th the festival's two stages will showcase ten area bands that pay homage to our nation's founding fathers of jazz and blues. Expect to see involvement from the entire community as kids from the age of six to ninety-six frolic and mimic the
anticipated second-line dances of the south.
