Brewery Garden & Food

The Silver Spring Arts & Entertainment District is home to several Breweries!  New this year will be an on-site Brewery Garden with seating, lounge areas, lawn games, and art demos. The Brewery Garden will be adjacent to the festival site on Ellsworth Drive.

Denizens, Third Hill, and Silver Branch Breweries will be vending their craft beer. The offerings are brewed within the Silver Spring Brewery & Arts district.

No outside alcohol is permitted on-site.  Beer must stay within the fenced area.  All ages are allowed within the garden, but must be over 21 to be served. 

The festival site is surrounded by family-friendly American and ethnic restaurants. Tables for outdoor eating are also located on Ellsworth Drive.  


The Silver Spring Jazz Festival continues rain or shine. If weather conditions become dangerous, an announcement will be made from the stage to take cover in the adjacent parking garage. If the dangerous weather causes the event to be canceled, an announcement will be made through Montgomery County Public Information Channels.


No smoking, alcohol, or video/audio recording are allowed on the Plaza.


Restrooms are available at the port-a-johns located on Veterans Place (behind the building).
