The inaugural 2012 Center City Jazz Festival took place in April 2012 and featured 17 original bands from the Philadelphia and NYC areas. Hundreds of jazz lovers came out for an exhilarating day of great music. The bands performed in four packed venues which were all centrally located in downtown Philadelphia and within a short walking distance of each other. Venues included Time Restaurant, Chris' Jazz Cafe, Fergie's Pub, and Milkboy Philadelphia. The 2012 Festival was made possible through an innovative Kickstarter campaign, during which nearly 200 individuals contributed.
