The Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is a free jazz music festival held annually in June at Rodney Square in Wilmington, Delaware, USA. The first festival was held in 1989 on the open lawn in the center of the city, and has grown into the largest free jazz festival on the East Coast.[citation needed] The event is held to keep alive the memory of Clifford Brown who died in a traffic accident in 1956 along with pianist Richie Powell.[citation needed] Pieces written by Brown and tribute pieces (like Benny Golson's "I Remember Clifford") are often played.[citation needed] Some acts have been staged at the Winterthur Museum and Country Estate, where a fee was charged.[citation needed]
