Join us for three days of Jazz, Swing, and Dixieland favorites to honor one of the most prominent and charismatic trumpeters of all time, Bunny Berigan, in his hometown of Fox Lake, Wisconsin. Begun in 1973 as a single-day event, the festival has developed into a weekend celebration featuring musicians from across the country with fans traveling from around the world to partake in this jazz jubilee.
In addition to over 20 hours of musical entertainment, the event will feature a number of presentations on this amazing musician and his contributions to the world of jazz and swing.
The three-day music festival includes venues throughout the quaint city of Fox Lake … the local drive-in/carhop stand, Community Center, American Legion Hall and a service at Bunny’s gravesite. Make plans to join us as we honor the memory of this once-in-a-lifetime trumpeter whose talent has impacted the music industry for over 80 years.
