The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz's mission is to expose and educate our ever-growing audiences and to celebrate America's only true art form, JAZZ, by presenting over twenty-five hours of music performed by internationally acclaimed artists.
The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz is a non-profit organization originally conceived by Paul Brown, noted Hartford jazz bassist and music educator. For 26 years, Paul had produced the Monday Night Jazz Concerts in Bushnell Park, drawing thousands of music lovers to Hartford's Bushnell Park for picnics and world-class entertainment. That first Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz, in July of 1992, was dedicated to the 25th anniversary of those wonderful summers.
The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz has grown to be the largest FREE jazz event in New England, with an average attendance of over 55,000, and attracting more than 70,000 fans during the three day Festival in 2014!
