The 70th International Al Jolson Festival

The 70th Anniversary of the Al Jolson Festival will be held May 14 to 17, 2020. Rather than present a lengthy write-up on the history of the festival, and the fan club that puts on this wonderful event, I thought it would be more fitting to reprint the advertisement sent to me, along with a link providing all of the information you need to register.

Even if you cannot attend the event, the fan club provides a newsletter -- among other goodies -- that makes it worth signing up for.   Cost per year is $26.50 and you receive access to so many recordings and memorabilia that you will come to value the entertainer's lengthy career from stage, screen and radio.

March 14, 2020 UPDATE: The event has been rescheduled for a one-day event in August at the same venue. More details to be added later.
