The National Jazz Festival thanks the Waterman II Fund of the Philadelphia Foundation for their generous grant that made the 2020 festival possible. Without their support our event at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on February 15, 2020 would not have been a success.

The NJF is grounded in a philosophy of personal growth and education and our annual event fosters friendly competition, musical education and the development of lasting connections between young jazz musicians.

Consider making a donation to support our mission to provide a festival with an educational philosophy that is free for all to attend.
