The PJAMF will be taking a creative break to Re-Boot, Re-Design, and Re-Create the historic fest that is truly dear to our musical hearts! We will return in 2016!!
SAVE THE DATE
The NEW DATE is SEPTEMBER 24 & 25, 2016
After eight music filled years the Port Jefferson American Music Festival has decided to take a one-year hiatus for 2014, with solid plans to return in 2015.
Fest organizer Jim Faith felt that it was time to re-think, re-brand, and re-design the complete festival experience.
Plans are to include the whole village, full waterfront, all restaurants and clubs, and increase the amount of entertainers performing, the level of artists booked, and expand the children’s entertainment and the family experience.
We thank all of our fans, and past performers for their support, and we look forward to seeing everyone at an even bigger and better 2015 Port Jefferson Music Festival.
