Elkhart Jazz Festival draws new crowd

Posted:

The music may be over now but hundreds of people sure enjoyed this weekend at the Elkhart Jazz Festival.

Sunday wrapped up the last day of the event.

Over 20 jazz artists entertained the masses in downtown Elkhart for days.

Organizers say attendance was better than last year and another plus is a younger audience is now attending.

"I think that's probably the most notable success of this years festival was that there was a shift.  We have the jazz fans that's been around for 26 years and then we saw so many new faces," says Festival Co-Chair David Smith.

Organizers have already started planning for next years festival.

They say they'll be announcing a big act in the upcoming weeks.
