Celebrating 42 Years!

The San Diego Jazz Fest is one of the longest running annual music festivals dedicated to celebrating jazz music of the early 20th Century. Since 1980, this event has been held during Thanksgiving weekend in San Diego, California, and features a variety of musical artists performing traditional jazz, swing, blues, ragtime, boogie woogie, gospel, and rhythm and blues.  A list of invited bands and artists can be found on the band lineup page. If you are interested in sponsoring a band or artist, please visit our sponsorship page.

For 2021, the Jazz Fest will be a VIRTUAL EVENT where anyone can watch online over the Thanksgiving weeked (November 26-28). The decision to do another virtual event was not easy to make, but the Festival Steering Committee and the Board of Directors were unanimous in this course of action.  While it is frustrating to go another year without our signature live event, as an organization who intends to preserve and promote jazz, we feel the health and safety of everyone involved is of utmost importance. 

Stay tuned for additional information!
