About Us

MISSION STATEMENT: The Healdsburg Jazz Festival stimulates interest in and promotes awareness and appreciation of jazz by facilitating cross-cultural interaction, providing performance opportunities, and educating young people and adults about the important role of jazz as an indigenous American art form.

The Healdsburg Jazz Festival is a celebration of the indigenous American art form known as Jazz. Over the past decade-plus, the Healdsburg Jazz Festival has become a favorite local tradition with a growing national reputation. This 10-day festival of public performances by world-renowned musicians in diverse settings, including the historic Raven Theater, the glamorous Hotel Healdsburg, and several boutique restaurants and wineries, has grown into one of the North Bay’s most celebrated annual musical events.

We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization; if you are interested in assisting our efforts please visit our Donations page or learn how to Become a Member. Feel free to email us if you have any further questions.
