The festival continues to be the largest FREE jazz festival in Southern New England.
The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz's mission is to expose and educate our ever-growing audiences and to celebrate America's only true art form, JAZZ, by presenting over twenty-five hours of music performed by internationally acclaimed artists. Wonderful world-class musicians will grace the main stage of the Thomas Harris IV Pavillon in Bushnell Park during the 2009 Festival. Local and regional artists will dazzle us with their talents on the Arch Stage located in the market place adjacent to Trinity Street.
