You Belong at Jazz Fest 2024!

The Mt. Hood Jazz Festival recognizes that Jazz represents the foundations of this country through improvising and navigating relationships. Grounded in Black and African American culture, this genre has gone on to celebrate and include people from all backgrounds, genders, races, and religions. This music is about overcoming injustice and rising above. Jazz serves as the perfect vehicle for education and harmony on social justice issues. We take pride in bringing music of these values to our community through live performances, education, and our annual Jazz Festival.
