Ocean City Jazz Festival

Saad&Shaw is proud to sponsor the 10th Annual Ocean City Jazz Festival.

Join us in Topsail North Carolina for the 2019 fourth of July weekend and celebrate with international jazz performers.

The intimate beach-side setting is a unique experience.

The Ocean City Community founded in 1949, was the only place African Americans could purchase coastal property in North Carolina, 15 years before the Civil Rights Act.   In 2009, to celebrate its 60th anniversary, a Fayetteville, NC jazz saxophonist and his accompanists were invited to provide entertainment on the porch of the Community Center. It was enjoyed by all in attendance, bringing in surrounding visitors to Topsail Island, NC and thus, the annual Ocean City Jazz Festival was launched as a vehicle to promote the history of the Ocean City Community. Ocean City has been designated as a historical site on the Jacksonville-Onslow County African American Trail and provides a wonderful 2-day venue for jazz lovers of all ages.
