The first Jazz in the Pass was held on May 8, 1999, and the event continued for the next eight years as a way to show support and appreciation to Pass Christian’s musical heritage. The popular event was discontinued after Hurricane Katrina and is now able to return with the support of Pass Christian Main Street. Learn more about this event’s history at Dan Ellis’s website:
