MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL

JOiN US!  The MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL, produced by JAZZ HOUSE KiDS has been the highlight on the August music calendar for the past 10 years.  New York City region's largest jazz festival, last year's two-week award-winning jazz fest welcomed more than 250 artists and over 15,000 music fans including 12,000 at its Grand Finale 10th Anniversary celebration in Nishuane Park.

 

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL has been re-imagined as a three-night virtual "Best of" Watch Party featuring iconic performances from the archives.  Curated by Artistic Director CHRISTIAN McBRIDE and Executive Producer MELISSA WALKER, the BEST OF THE MONTCLAIR JAZZ FESTIVAL will be streamed on FacebookYouTube and the Montclair Jazz Fest website, August 21-23 at 7:30 pm ET.
