Important Announcement

We are sad to announce that the Vail Jazz Foundation will be closing the bulk of its operations.  


Over the past 29 years, Vail Jazz has enjoyed tremendous success and has left an indelible impact on the lives of many. All of us who worked on and supported the Festival, education programs, and renowned Workshop can be proud of how much was achieved. However, these are difficult days for arts organizations across the country, and Vail Jazz is no exception: we face several daunting challenges that we are not able to overcome.


Thank you for your understanding and for all that you have done for Vail Jazz over the years.  We truly appreciate your support.


For media inquiries, please contact Garret Davies, Board President.

*Vail Jazz Goes to School will continue for the 2023/24 academic year. Click here for details.


A dozen of the country’s most dedicated, gifted, and promising high school jazz musicians participate in the 10-day Workshop.
