Every year in June, Mellon Bank sponsors a week long jazz festival held in Pittsburgh. Similar festivals are held in Philadelphia and Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania. Mellon brings all sorts of jazz musicians out to clubs, county parks, amphitheatres, and restaurants to play.

Many great musicians come out every year to play. Such musicians include Roy Hargrove, Walt Harper & All That Jazz, Joe Negri, the Charlie Hunter Trio, and many more. The best part about the week is that the majority of shows are free. Several of the night clubs have a cover charge, but the county parks and some jazz clubs allow people to come in free.
