The Rosslyn Business Improvement District will host the 24th Annual Rosslyn Jazz Festival on Saturday, September 6, from 1pm until 7pm, at Gateway Park.

In addition to great jazz, there will be a mix of local food trucks and fashion trucks . . . Street Boutique and The Thread Truck. And the Washington wine Academy will offer beer and wine for sale.

The Rosslyn Jazz Festival will be held at Gateway Park, located at North Fort Myer Driver, at the Custis Memorial Parkway.
