Northampton Jazz Festival

136 South Street
Northampton, MA 01060

The Northampton Jazz Festival, founded in 2011, is dedicated to carrying forward our great American music tradition of live jazz for generations to come. In 2018, we will honor this mission in new and meaningful ways.

We are renewing the popular festival for 2018, with a rich line-up of jazz artists from across the globe and around the region. We are strengthening our tradition of supporting individuals who wish to sing, play, or participate in live jazz by initiating the Jazz in the Schools program in partnership with Claire Williams, Band and General Music Instructor at the JFK Middle School in Florence, MA. We will be bringing professional jazz musicians in to work and play with her jazz band students three times a year.

We are also pleased to be partnering with the Downtown Northampton Association (DNA) directed by Amy Cahillane. Amy’s leadership of several successful downtown Northampton events, such as the Holiday and Summer Strolls and First Night, along with her affiliations with city government and the downtown merchants, gives us the foundation to ensure continued success for the Northampton Jazz Festival.
