The Port of Edmonds is hosting Sea Jazz concerts at the Edmonds Marina during Summer 2021, with performances by students from Edmonds-Woodway and Mountlake Terrace high schools, plus college graduate musicians.
All concerts will take place at the Port of Edmonds Public Plaza (458 Admiral Way, behind Anthony’s restaurants) where you can enjoy both the views and jazz music. Bring a blanket for the small grassy hill, or a lawn chair for the plaza.
