The Myrtle Beach Jazz Festival encourages you to take pictures with your friends and family at the event and share the great time you’re having! However, because of our contracts with the performers, professional recording equipment (photography, video, and/or sound) will not be allowed on premise without proper media credentials.

If you have any questions regarding your equipment, please contact us.

You will be outside, so we do ask that you be courteous of those around you, especially children, and leave the festival area to smoke or vape. Also, please pick up any litter from your vaping or smokes.

Outside food, alcohol or drinks INCLUDING water bottles are prohibited. Coolers take up a lot of room and are strictly prohibited at the festival. There are tons of great places to eat nearby and many beverage/food booths available onsite at the festival.

All ages are welcome. All children 15 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Myrtle Beach knows how to party, rain or shine. That being said, in the event of extreme inclement weather as determined by the festival’s organizers, there is a chance certain performances may be postponed, canceled or rescheduled as the safety of all attendees is our No. 1 priority. Be prepared and bring a rain jacket, umbrella or poncho.

Transportation is available from the Pelicans Baseball Stadium.
