The RiverJazz Festival is a jazz music festival started by ArtsQuest in 2011. The festival has been held each year at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. SteelStacks is a dynamic arts, culture and education campus that was constructed on 4.5 acres of the former Bethlehem Steel Corporation.[1] The event showcases local and national jazz and swing artists over the course of several days, typically sometime in April, May, or June. Attendees are welcome to attend the many free shows around the festival, or purchase tickets to see national headlining acts, where they are also offered meal options.[2]
