THE 2021 EVERGREEN JAZZ FESTIVAL HAS BEEN CANCELED.
The uncertainty of state and county Covid restrictions makes it impossible to commit to our usual up-close-and-personal format.
However, we are exploring streaming a series of live performances featuring many of the great bands you know from previous Festivals…all leading up to a very special 2022 event!
Check back here for updates as well as on Facebook and the Festival newsletter.

Each of the five Festival venues offers an intimate listening environment, and most Festival-goers make a point of experiencing all of them.
The Festival Mission Statement includes a commitment to jazz education. Two annual highlights are the opening Educational Concert and the Student Clinics conducted by Festival musicians.
When it all started, many in the jazz world must have thought, “That Colorado altitude has taken its toll on those guys. Start a traditional jazz festival in this era?” But a small group of dedicated jazz lovers did just that, and to the amazement of many, this July we present the nineteenth ren-dition of the Evergreen Jazz Festival. It promises to be another outstanding event, living up to the enthusiastic description by a national columnist as “the best jazz festival anywhere!”
Located just 30 minutes southwest of Denver, the scenic mountain community of Evergreen provides an idyllic setting for the 3-day event. Five distinctive, intimate venues ranging from a church to a bar and grill give audiences a delightful variety of up-close-and-personal listening experiences. And the music? Just check this year’s lineup! Absolutely top quality musicians, as always.
No big crowds. No big stages. No big sound systems. Just a big jazz experience you’re sure
to enjoy. Browse the website and check out this video to get an idea of what a special time this is. Then make your plans to join us for the 2020 Evergreen Jazz Festival!
