Mission Statement

The Portland Jazz Festival's mission is to promote jazz in the Pacific Northwest. The Portland Jazz Festival is an annual, multi-venue series of jazz events presented each February within the downtown area of Portland, Oregon. The Festival is dedicated to furthering jazz as America's most indigenous art form by presenting contemporary jazz masters in a concert setting; nurturing local jazz musicians presented within intimate, free performances; and celebrating February as Black History Month with a series of jazz education and outreach programs that extend into Portland's schools and community centers. The Portland Jazz Festival is a celebration of jazz, Black History Month, and the City of Portland. Throughout the Festival schedule, Friday, February 16 through Sunday, February 25, there will be dozens of ways to experience jazz, through performances, lectures, films and exhibitions.

Description

The Portland Jazz Festival is the premier event of Portland winter cultural season, bringing in world-class jazz talents from across the world and 20,000 visitors annually.
