Festival Detail

San Jose Jazz FestivalMusic

The sounds of jazz return to downtown San Jose.  From Friday afternoon to Sunday evening, music lovers will converge on the heart of Silicon Valley to enjoy three days of jazz, blues, salsa, Latin, R&B, electronica and many other forms of contemporary music.

Jazz is the basis for most of the popular music of today, and the AT&T San Jose Jazz Festival showcases that breadth.  Like the tradition of innovation here in Silicon Valley, jazz composition and performance continue to evolve and change.  During the three days of this year's festival, we promise that the cravings of even the most diverse music lover will be satisfied.

Festival has a children/youth component.
