The Ballard Jazz Festival is proud to welcome jazz fans throughout the Northwest.
For those traveling from Portland, OR, we've created a special page to make your planning easier.
Four drummers lead their own groups at Conor Byrne Pub on the opening night of the festival.
Guitarists take the stage on night two of the festival as we showcase some of the finest six-string talent from the Northwest and beyond.
New for this year is a special FRIDAY EVENING CONCERT at the Nordic Heritage Museum. Featuring New York guitarist Peter Bernstein’s Trio and legendary bassist David Friesen with his Circle 3 Trio, the evening is hosted by PRI Jazz After Hours broadcaster, Jeff Hanley.
Jazz takes over downtown Ballard as we present 15 groups in 9 venues all for a single ticket price. The most recognizable event of the festival brings together all styles of jazz and a New Orleans atmosphere with listeners pouring from club-to-club making this a truly one-of-a-kind event.
On Saturday, we kick off a full day of events at 11:00am with the Swedish Pancake Jazz Brunch and a classic Volvo and Saab car show.
The crown jewel of the festival, we welcome international jazz artists to Ballard at our Mainstage Concert at the Nordic Heritage Museum at 7:30pm.
