Santa Cruz Jazz Festival • March 18-19, 2022

Our 34th Season!

COVID-19 (Coronavirus  Update): Festival Cancelled until 2022

Sadly, Cabrillo College has required that we cancel the Jazz Festival for the 2021. Our hope is that we will be able to survive this situation and you will again join us in the future. We are booking March 18-19, 2022 festival!

Mark Bidelman 

Santa Cruz Jazz Festival Director
Welcome to the Santa Cruz Jazz Festival website. 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!
