Music & Dance on Every Corner

At the Cherokee Street Jazz Crawl on the first Saturday in November, you'll find dance and music on every corner of Cherokee Street — swing dancers and blues musicians tucked in between vintage clothing racks or brass bands marching down the street in the 2nd line parade.

This is a people's music festival — open to all styles & free to the public.

Thank You!

How it Started

Cherokee Street Jazz Crawl begun in 2012 as aspect of the Nevermore Jazz Ball & St. Louis Swing Dance Festival and under the leadership of the STL Jitterbugs.

Overtime, the Jazz Crawl has taken on a life of its own. On Cherokee Street, you’re as likely to see a roller-skating banana as a neighbor walking their dog. Its constant stream of shops, eateries, bars, and cafes makes the street a hotbed of music and art, often underground, within an already vibrant city. And beyond that, Cherokee Street is a place to just be. The annual Cherokee Street Jazz Crawl is a culmination of this, a celebration of the city’s urban music and dance scene, and simply an amazing party.

Today the Jazz Crawl is put on by Cherokee Street Foundation and organized by dance instructor, performer & musician Christian Frommelt.
