About Keyaki Street Jazz Festival 2019 JAZZinFUCHU
In 2004, the first street jazz was played in commemoration of the Fuchu city government 50th anniversary at Keyaki street, the main street of Fuchu. In Fuchu it was very few chance to enjoy the live jazz for the people. This festival was started by the sponsorship of the Fuchu Culture Promotion Foundation in 2006 for the purpose of providing an opportunity to the people to hear the Jazz more easily and closely. From 2012 until today this event has been supported by the 100% citizen’s executive committee. This committee is operated by 100% volunteers and it takes care of all arrangement including selecting players, setting up the stages, inviting audience and so on. It is really a kind of citizen’s event now.
