Friends of the Festival

Dear Jazz Lover:

“You Make It Happen” The mission of the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz is to produce a world-class free jazz festival that enlivens the cultural and economic vitality of Greater Hartford.

We are petitioning “Friends of the Festival” (FOF) to help celebrate our 33rd year!!!

This free-of-charge Festival is supported by small and medium-sized charitable gifts and donations from foundations, businesses and corporations as well as City of Hartford and State of Connecticut grants.
