Healdsburg Jazz in the Community

Two of Healdsburg’s greatest qualities — its small-town feel and its world-class sensibilities — add a winning combination to the Healdsburg Jazz Festival’s annual series of concerts, hosted gatherings and both planned and spontaneous collaborations.  We are very fortunate to have the ongoing support of so many Healdsburg residents, establishments and benefactors.  Our musicians and festival patrons have been made to feel very welcome in our hometown for all these years. Residents with private guest homes host many musicians, area restaurants and caterers donate food and drink, and businesses in town decorate their store windows with musical themes.  All of the spirit and energy of this year-long effort takes place during the beginning of June, transforming our small town into a mecca for world-class performers.

With great appreciation and heartfelt thanks, we acknowledge the following individuals, organizations, and businesses that contributed to making the 15th Annual Healdsburg Jazz Festival a tremendous success:
