The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz has grown to be the largest free jazz event in New England, with an average attendance of over 45,000, and attracting more than 50,000 fans during this three-day Festival!
The tradition continues in 2018 in Bushnell Park, America’s oldest public park, when the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz will present its 27th annual event of three nights and two days of hot and cool jazz on the Performance Pavilion and the Friends of the Festival Arch Stage, featuring great artists from around the world and the USA, as well as young and up-and-coming performers from the local region.
Connecticut's State Capitol Building and Hartford's skyline provide a beautiful, dramatic backdrop as the sun sets and the stars rise in the night sky and on stage.
Bring chairs and blankets and the entire family! Visit the arts and crafts vendors and there will also be food and drink available for sale.
Friday, 5 p.m.-10 p.m.; Saturday 1 p.m-midnight; Sunday 10 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
