The Duck Jazz Festival is a cultural event which brings nearly 7,000 people to the Town over Columbus Day weekend. Each year, the Town brings national, regional, and local jazz artists to Duck for this premier jazz event. The festival is being offered to our Outer Banks community as a free event and is designed to provide a unique entertainment opportunity for residents and visitors right here on the Outer Banks.
The Town of Duck is seeking sponsorships from the business community to assist with the costs of planning and staging a quality Jazz Festival which not only includes the day of festival events, but also an educational component for our high school students, various artist appearances throughout the Town of Duck, and a sponsor reception.
