After a fortnight of shows all over the city, the D.C. Jazz Festival — arguably the District’s biggest annual jazz event — ends its 2011 run tonight with performances including “A Night in Treme: The Musical Majesty of New Orleans” at the Kennedy Center.

“A Night in Treme” will be mounted on KenCen’s Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m. and features Big Sam Williams, Donald Harrison, Dr. Michael White, James Andrews, Rebirth Brass Band and Wendell Pierce.

If you can’t make the show — or if a club venue is more your style — here’s a listing of other local jazz events tonight:

Jeron White Trio: 7:30 p.m. at Black Fox Lounge

Synchronicity: 8 p.m. at Blues Alley

Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra: 8 p.m. at Bohemian Caverns

Jazz Jam: 8 p.m. at MapleWood Grill
