What about St. Lucia Jazz? Not as large as the featured ones but a fanastic event.

Can't believe you missed the annual (mid-August) Philadelphia Folk Festival, now in it's 53rd year! It's the oldest and biggest fest of its kind, and has featured some of the biggest stars of the folk/rock/indie/blues/country music world. Definitely deserves a mention on this list!
