Milwaukee – June 7, 2021 – Fresh Coast Jazz Festival will hold its first Fall Affair on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts (Wilson Center) in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

“We were of course disappointed that Covid-19 forced the postponement of our three-day festival originally scheduled for August 27-29 of 2021,” said event founder Carl Brown. “We knew our friends and fans were missing live smooth jazz performances, so we wanted to provide an opportunity for people to enjoy a jazz festival experience in a safe and fun environment.”

“To say we are excited about The Fall Affair would be an understatement,” said Brown. “The Wilson Center is a beautiful venue in a picturesque park-like setting, our line-up features some of today’s best smooth jazz artists and the food and vendor options will provide something for everyone to enjoy!”
“We are looking forward to a beautiful fall day filled with good friends, delicious food and drinks and of course great smooth jazz music,” said Brown. “We also want to remind everyone that proceeds from Fresh Coast Jazz Festival events go to providing scholarships for deserving area students, so this truly is a party with a purpose.”
