The DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is the largest, multi-day, free, outdoor music festival on the East Coast. Taking place in downtown Wilmington. At this festival, artists have performed some of Clifford’s great work. Past festival patrons have heard artists like Chic Corea, Jerry Gonzalez, Pete Escovedo and his orchestra, KEM, Jonathan Butler, Lalath Hathaway, Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun, and Norman Brown.

Wilmington’s own Clifford Brown was a trumpeter, whose life tragically ended early one summer morning in 1956. The DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is Wilmington’s tribute to a great man and his legacy. This year marks the 29th Annual Clifford Brown Jazz Festival and the 61st anniversary of his passing.

A legend whose work offers us a moment to laugh, dance, sing, eat, love and experience the ultimate joy music brings to us always.
