About the Fletcher Henderson Jazz Festival

The Fletcher Henderson Jazz Festival has been Southwest Georgia’s only jazz-specific festival with the first festival being held in 1987 and since 1999 it has been held annually on the Saturday before Columbus Day. The festival is held to preserve the memory and legacy of jazz pioneer and Cuthbert’s native son, Fletcher Henderson Jr.
