I am a Hartford native who moved away many years ago. This was my first time attending the Festival and had the pleasure of providing my photography assistance to the team. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. I look forward to returning again where my schedule allows.

Special Thanks to Charles Christie and the wonderful Team. Great Job by all!

Fantastic Music! Thanks for the opportunity to assist!

Henry Jennings Jr

I have spent over 25 years in Hartford Bushnell Park experiencing Jazz and other forms of music. The Greater Hartford Jazz Festival brings family, friends and strangers from various cultures together for a weekend of fellowship through a musical connection. I am very appreciative to the Greater Hartford Jazz Festival; I started volunteering my services to give back for all you have given me and my family.

Debra Mauldin

I have been attending the Jazz Festival since the beginning and it just gets better every year. 2015 was wonderful, especially Saturday, which has become my favorite day during the event. Looking forward to the 25th!!!
