Cork Jazz Weekend

The Cork Jazz Festival is an annual music festival held in Cork City in late October. Cork’s first jazz festival began on Friday 27 October 1978, and has been held year after year since then. This year, enjoy Europe’s biggest jazz party as the Cork Jazz Festival celebrates its 44th edition!

Featuring over 1,000 musicians in hundreds of music sessions citywide, Cork Jazz Weekend is one of the jewels in the crown of Irish festivals. Every year concerts, gigs and impromptu performances take place across the city for the duration of the bank holiday weekend in Cork. The festival is Ireland's biggest jazz event and attracts hundreds of musicians and thousands of music fans to the city each year. Year after year, people flock to the Maryborough from far and wide to enjoy the live music in the city, as well as some of the best accommodation in Cork.
