The PJF Mission

The Philadelphia Jazz Festival – a week-long festival that occurs throughout the city of Philadelphia during Jazz Appreciation Month in April. The festival promises to be the preeminent jazz exhibition in the Mid-Atlantic region by banding together popular local, national, and international talent to coordinate not only a memorable yearly event, but preserve and promote the emblematic jazz history of Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Jazz Festival will inspire and reinvigorate our audience’s passion for jazz and cultivate future generations of festival attendees and jazz admirers. The festival will also be coupled with education, engagement and community events..
