The Jazz Society of Oregon’s ™ Cathedral Park Jazz Festival ™ features many Portland-based, nationally-known musicians. The entertainment offers a variety of jazz and blues music to showcase America’s original art form, Jazz. The festival is open to everyone.

There are many ways to support the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival. Because this festival is FREE, the non-profit Jazz Society relies on sponsors to help off-set the costs of production. To become a sponsor, you may donate money or donate products and/or services. We acknowledge our sponsors on radio, print, and Internet advertising.
