Jazz can be enjoyed anywhere-- on a stage, in your car, or in a tent! The Jazz Tent at Romare Bearden Park makes it big debut this year. This isn't your average tent though, it's big. We're talking about holding 400 people. That's a lot of jazz fans under one tent! Experience it and you'll see why the tent is one of the hottest spots during the Charlotte Jazz Festival.
