Join the King Arts Complex for the annual Heritage Music Festival. Once known as the “Cradle of Jazz,” the Mount Vernon of the King Lincoln District is the place to be every Thursday in July and August. Performances from local, regional, and national musical artists will keep it hot with Jazz, Classical R&B, inspirational, and Blues! A Food Court and reserved tables on the Patio will be available.

The King Arts Complex's Heritage Music Festival has been a signature Columbus community celebration for over two decades, consistently attracting crowds of nearly 5,000 attendees each week! Our annual festival is a family event enjoyed by men, women, and children of all backgrounds. Bring a blanket, or lawn chair, and relax in the beautiful Mayme Moore Park!
