Portland Jazz Festival


The Portland Jazz Festival is in full swing!

The festival is dedicated to preserving America’s indigenous art by presenting an array of talented local and international jazz musicians – and it’s a great way to celebrate Black History Month.

Along with its swinging beats, the Jazz Festival also provides education and outreach programs for Portland’s schools and neighborhoods. 

PDX Jazz, a local non-profit cultural arts organization, partners with Travel Portland each year to produce the festival. The Regional Arts & Culture Council is also proud to provide funding for the event.   

2015’s festival runs through March 1.  Check out the Portland Jazz Festival’s website for a schedule and locations.
