Litchfield Jazz Festival
Updated: Jul 4, 2019
The Opening Night Gala, Friday, July 26, will be hosted at Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens in Washington Depot.
July 26, July 27, & July 28, 2019
Set in the picturesque, rolling Litchfield Hills, the Litchfield Jazz Festival was established nearly a quarter century ago. That first line-up in 1996 would be the envy of any major festival today—Diana Krall, Christian McBride, Terence Blanchard, Russell Malone, Peter Bernstein, Ahmad Jamal, Renee Rosnes, JJ Johnson ... If you remember this or any of the wonderful festivals that followed, you won’t want to miss Litchfield Jazz Fest 2019.
THINGS ARE NEW THIS YEAR! - As you may know, the Litchfield Jazz Festival is the public face of the non-profit Litchfield Performing Arts, while Litchfield Jazz Camp is its heart. To connect the Festival more closely to the Camp it serves, to make it a community event, and to keep it sustainable, we’ve decided to change the Festival paradigm.
