Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz
Jul 18 - Jul 20, 2014
The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz (GHFJ) has a long history. The GHFJ is one of the longest running, most popular events held in Hartford, and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation made up of a volunteer board. We rely solely on outside funding as this festival is a free event. The Festival is also New England’s largest free jazz festival.
The organization’s key activities are to promote and manage a successful weekend-long free festival that draws tens of thousands of attendees to Hartford in late July annually. The festival boasts a history of presenting national and international mainstream, cutting-edge, traditional and contemporary jazz performers
The entire festival attracts an average of 45,000 to 50,000 attendees. There is no cost to our attendees to listen to live music. This makes it possible for those who may not be able to afford ticket prices at other venues, thus giving people the capability to bring family members and friends to a quality cultural event for free, allowing more people to experience the festival
