Welcome to the Santa Cruz Jazz Festival website. Come and celebrate our 30th year! Our 2016 festival is scheduled for March 18th-19th. Your participation includes performing in state of the art facilities at Cabrillo College, attending eye opening master classes/clinics, listening to our fabulous guest artists, and enjoying the beautiful surrounding area. Top scoring bands and vocal groups will be invited to perform at a command performance concert in the Crocker Theater. Don’t forget to explore the beaches, the Boardwalk, and the redwoods, all within the immediate area. Sign up soon because we fill up quickly, and this is a festival you don’t want to miss!
Jazz is alive!
