We are a local charitable organization  that brings Jazz in its traditional and more modern  forms to suburban Maryland and DC.  Every June we host a free all-day jazz festival on the streets of Takoma Park, Maryland. The Fest has two stages, with music featuring local and nationally known performers, food and art/craft vendors. This is a FREE family event which is held rain or shine.  We also host  the Jazz Brawl every February.  The Brawl is a contest between up-and-coming local bands that compete for a chance to play at the Fest in June.  Catch Takoma JazzFest  performances are on Montgomery County Cable.  See your cable listings for Channel number for Takoma Park TV .  NOW SHOWING 2013 JAZZFEST

Comments from 2013 Fest Go’ers

I like the Fest, I’ll be back next year

Love the variety of vendor items, music is “super-duper”

Love it - two thumbs up!

Great vendors, love to see younger musicians

Love it all  

Kids like the music, the dogs and the big tricycle

Lots to like - just the right size

Like the international flavor of the vendors

Among jazz festivals this is my favorite

Just my speed and size. Thank you,  Takoma Park!
