Starting as a community event in 2003 to highlight the thriving neighborhood of old town Ballard and Seattle’s world-class jazz musicians, the Ballard Jazz Festival quickly grew into a nationally recognized festival featured in JazzTimes & Modern Drummer magazines and in an MSNBC report on international jazz festivals. Even with it’s growing successes, the Ballard Jazz Festival’s main goal continues to be the celebration of this community and of the artists who live here.
The Ballard Jazz Festival now has 501(c)(3) Non-Profit status as an associated program of Shunpike.
