Event: PDX Jazz Festival

Date: February 18, 2022

PDX Jazz Festival celebrates Black History Month with a series of concerts and events presented over two weeks every February. This celebration of improvised music returns (virtually) Feb. 18–27, featuring live-streams performances from some of jazz’s greatest stars.

Dedicated to preserving America’s indigenous art form by presenting internationally recognized jazz masters alongside local musicians, this annual festival usually includes education and outreach programs that extend into Portland’s schools and neighborhoods, as well as a generous offering of free performances.
