Litchfield Jazz Festival
Washington, CT | Thomas S Perakos Performing Arts and Community Center
Frederick Gunn School
Come on down for a weekend of outstanding performances by an array of jazz stars. Shows kick off Friday night with our annual Opening Night Gala and wrap up with a swinging Jazz Brunch Sunday afternoon.
Set in the picturesque, rolling Litchfield Hills, we are excited to be able to welcome back audiences IN-PERSON this summer! The Litchfield Jazz Festival was established over a quarter century ago. That first line-up in 1996 would be the envy of any major festival today—Diana Krall, Christian McBride, Terence Blanchard, Russell Malone, Peter Bernstein, Ahmad Jamal, Renee Rosnes, JJ Johnson … If you remember this or any of the wonderful festivals that followed, you won’t want to miss Litchfield Jazz Fest 2022.
