The PDX Jazz Festival

The PDX Jazz Festival is a multi-venue series of jazz events presented each February within Portland, Oregon. Nationally and regionally supported as a cultural tourism initiative in celebration of Black History Month, PDX Jazz Festival is dedicated to preserving America’s indigenous art form by presenting internationally recognized jazz masters alongside local jazz musicians. A series of jazz education and outreach programs that extend into Portland’s schools and neighborhoods is at the heart of the annual event.

Presented by PDX Jazz

In addition to the PDX Jazz Festival, PDX Jazz produces a variety of year-around performances that feature acclaimed national and international jazz musicians, as well as the renowned talent of Portland’s musician community. Our programming brings jazz to many Portland neighborhoods and in communities beyond the region’s boundaries.
