Seabreeze Jazz Festival
April 21st - April 25th


One of the area’s largest and most popular festivals once again plays to the ears of Jazz music lovers at Aaron Bessant Park in Panama City Beach. If you’ve never experienced the Seabreeze Jazz Festival at Pier Park, make plans now to enjoy what has quickly become one of the premier music festivals anywhere. 

Starting in Walton County in 1998, the Seabreeze Jazz Festival began attracting music lovers from all over for its top-tier lineup of world-renown jazz artists and picture-perfect setting along our famed Emerald Coast. The crowds grew quickly and the festival was moved to Panama City Beach’s Pier Park in 2008. 

Since moving to Panama City Beach, the festival has been hailed as one of the best jazz festivals in the nation for the caliber of its lineup, sun-soaked setting, and family-friendly atmosphere.

Bring a blanket and your beach chair and settle in for five days of outdoor entertainment. Past events have featured the talents of some of the biggest names in jazz including Brian Culbertson, Jeffrey Osborne, The Jacksons, Steve Cole, Jonathan Butler and more. The Seabreeze Jazz Festival runs from April 21 to April 25 and Emerald View Resorts can help you with everything you need to make the most of your festival experience.

During the festival, Panama City Beach is filled with a laid-back, casual vibe that is perfect for families, adults and anyone that appreciates quality music and worry-free vacationing. When not enjoying the live sounds of the artists at Pier Park, April is the perfect time to enjoy our spectacular white sand beaches as the waters warm and the traditional Spring Break crowds have long faded away. Many local establishments offer special events as an extension of the festival and the smooth jazz rhythms descend all across the city.
