Stowe Jazz Festival

September 7 - 9, 2018

The Stowe Jazz Festival is a three-day, multi-venue, free festival held in the beautiful, mountain village of Stowe, Vermont. The music, the atmosphere, the overall vibe of this festival is uniquely Stowe and free of charge. From September 7 – 9, 2018 the Stowe Jazz Festival takes place in one of the most picturesque regions in New England. Jazz has so many sub-genres it can be difficult to describe, but at its very core is a sense of reaching-out, engagement and communication. We’ll be presenting nothing but Jazz at our Festival each year’ Be-bob, Brazilian Jazz, Swing, Gypsy Jazz, Progressive/Electric Jazz, Standards, Afro-Cuban Jazz, instrumental and vocal artists alike. Jazz crosses all barriers, embraces all and refuses none.
