Set in the picturesque, rolling Litchfield Hills, the Litchfield Jazz Festival was launched in 1996 with a line-up any well-established festival would have been proud of.
This year, the Festival will celebrate it's 21st year and also the 20th Anniversary of it's educational arm, Litchfield Jazz Camp, with the theme Generations of Jazz. Two decades of top jazz instruction by the best clinicians in the world at Litchfield Jazz Camp have produced the stars of today and tomorrow. We have selected a roster of ultra-talented, young musicians, players who have been a part of Litchfield Jazz Camp, to grace our Mainstage alongside established jazz musicians who have served as their mentors and helped them grow as musicians. Some of these pairings will surprise you. All will delight you. Let’s rejoice together in 20 years of growing the future of jazz!
Also, this year we will be hosting a great party, the first ever Scat & Scramble Jazz Brunch, proceeds will benefit need-based scholarships to Litchfield Jazz Camp. Brunch tickets are included with all Best Friends and Sunday VIP Tickets. Delicious food Southern style by festival favorite O’Deens BBQ and music to match. Donald Harrison will head up a big band of our top jazz campers and instructors in music from the Big Easy. Get ready for a swinging good time and bring those second line umbrellas. We’ll bring the beads!! Brunch tickets are included in all Sunday VIP passes.
