Join us in the lush surrounds of Hyde Park for the popular jazz picnic in the park.

Jazz Parade
In celebration of getting together and playing music, take part in our Jazz Parade and play some New Orleans-style brass band tunes as we march around Hyde Park. Bring your (portable) instrument and good vibes, and if you don’t play an instrument, join in anyway and just celebrate your love of music! All ages and abilities are welcome, and if you’d like to take part, please meet us at the stage at 12pm.

Welcome to Country
Following the Parade, settle in for a Welcome to Country from Dr Richard Walley.

Live Jazz
Bring a picnic and catch Perth’s rising stars including the WAYJO Big Band with Armadale High School’s music students. There’ll also be Brazilian grooves from Danilo da Paz and Perth Choro, and some swingin’ sounds from Penny King Quartet and Marty Pervan’s Midnight Rollers.
