Davie Jazz Festival to debut at Bergeron Rodeo Grounds this month

Live music, food, adult beverages and fast cars will take over the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds for the inaugural Davie Jazz Festival this month. And organizers promise something for everyone, including newcomers to the genre.

In an effort to carve out more opportunities for arts and cultural education, the town of Davie in partnership with the newly founded Davie Jazz Society and other organizations are launching the inaugural Davie Jazz Festival at 4271 Davie Road on Sunday, April 28 with gates opening at 1 p.m. and music starting at 2 p.m.

Zita Steglich Ross is the festival’s producer and chief marketing officer for Steglich Ross and Associates, an Orlando-based hospitality marketing consulting firm that works with governments and businesses.

Ross said she was contacted by a friend who recently moved to Davie who spoke to the Mayor Judy Paul and said local high schools and colleges had jazz bands and music programs that fostered an increased interest in more live jazz in a town historically known for its rural areas, equestrian activities and cowboy traditions.
