For nearly fifty years, the Wichita Jazz Festival has been dedicated to fostering great jazz in Wichita and supporting the next generation of Kansas jazz musicians. Our concerts, educational programs and annual Festival bring some of the greatest names in jazz to Wichita, and our educational programs give young players the opportunity to work with professional musicians to foster America's finest musical tradition right here in our home town.



The Wichita Jazz Festival, educational programs and additional events are only possible because of the support of our donors.

Individual donations are crucial in keeping the Wichita Jazz Festival a growing organization that brings world-class jazz to Wichita and fosters Wichita's next generation of jazz musicians.
