The Patron Program is an important part of the support for the Festival. Since 1999, the Healdsburg Jazz Festival has grown from a favorite local tradition to a nationally recognized festival of public performances by world-renowned musicians. The Healdsburg Jazz Festival provides a  unique experience to enjoy world class jazz performances in some of Sonoma County’s most beautiful settings.

As a Patron, you will have “inner circle” access to the concerts and artists throughout the 10-day event. On a larger scale, you will become a member of the vibrant community of wineries, businesses and individuals who support this great art form, its artists and its students.
