We are proud to welcome Kimberlee to our ever-growing roster of Signature Artists!!


This year, we welcome artist Kimberlee Forney. Kimberlee will be at the SJF with her artwork for sale. The SJF would like to thank Kimberlee for her wonderful work, incredibly positive vibe and this FANTASTIC piece...it's just PERFECT for the 2019 festival!! Please visit her at: www.kimforney.com

Welcome...we’re BACK for 2019!

2017 was a great start…and then, 2018 proved the model and our Mission to invite world class jazz artists to perform in Stowe…100% jazz and 100% free to the public.  With all the incredible music we’re bringing this year, the beauty of our location and the hugely supportive Stowe community fully engaged, how could such a Festival celebrating Jazz possibly miss the mark?  We’ll continue to update our schedule, our information and links…as well as our roster of local, regional and national Sponsors. Browse around and re-visit the site often…there will be updates every day now. See you in September…

Schedule of Events

Jazz...has so many sub-genres, it can be difficult to describe...but at it's very core is a sense of reaching-out, engagement, communication.  We'll be presenting nothing but Jazz at our Festival each year; Be-bop, Brazilian jazz, Swing, Gypsy jazz, Progressive/electric jazz, Standards, Afro-Cuban jazz, Instrumental and Vocal Artists alike...

...truly, JAZZ crosses all barriers...embraces all, refuses none...

Have a look at our SCHEDULE page for details on all this year's great events.  And again, they're all FREE...no tickets, no cover charges.  Come and enjoy it all.

...and we'll be adding to this over the next few weeks!  So stay tuned!

 

Sponsors

A big part of the Mission of the SJF is to invite local and regional businesses to sponsor the entire Festival so that all events can be offered to the public free of charge.  If our own community pulls together to host this event and bring visitors to Stowe...and if ALL the music is presented without cost to the public...we ALL win.  Every single one of us, every business, every venue, every guest, every musician...

So we send a heartfelt THANKS to each of the Sponsors that have joined us, that have shown their support to the Music and to Stowe by chipping-in...in whatever way they can. 

 

So please have a look at our SPONSORS page - and get to know all these brands...we're confident you'll make them your friends, too.
