What People are Saying

One of the top ten festivals in the world!

— The Music Festival Guide (Chicago Review Press)

I adore how the Festival breathes new life into the City; it’s the best kick off to a music filled summer ahead!


After living in Vermont for most of my life, I can say with certainty that the days of Jazz Fest every June are the time when I feel most at home.


I look forward to Jazzfest all year because it has the power to wake this town up after a long, cold winter and bring us all together to dance, sing, smile, let go, support our amazing local musicians, and celebrate being alive! What could be more important than that?!


My husband & I were traveling the area for a mini-vacation. We were so happy that our vacation fell on the jazz festival date. I cannot get over how incredible all the musicians were. Every single band (no matter what genre) was amazing. Thank you so much for putting together a fabulous show. I hope to continue visiting Burlington & the jazz festival!!
