Presented in the 20-acre landscaped Coachman Park in downtown Clearwater overlooking beautiful Clearwater Harbor and the majestic Memorial Causeway Bridge, the Jazz Holiday is four days and nights of some of the best live performances in the world presented to the public. The visitor experience is complemented by the Clearwater area's mild fall weather, miles of world-famous Gulf beaches, brilliant sunsets, nearby attractions, accommodations and dining to suit every taste and budget.
One of the longest-running and known events in the country, the Clearwater Jazz Holiday has presented in concert multiple luminaries of our generation. The mission of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Foundation is to be the leading proponent of jazz entertainment and education in Florida through the annual presentation of a world-class, live music festival. The Clearwater Jazz Holiday Foundation is a 501c3 organization that has been center-stage for numerous scholarship and educational activities to benefit the music students of our community-from the blues-loving beginners to piano-playing protégés, and everyone in between.
The magic of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday emanates from its long-time collaboration with the City of Clearwater, Ruth Eckerd Hall, and hundreds of volunteers that orchestrate every chord of the Jazz Holiday, a celebration of the most recognized and emerging national, regional, and local artists. From smooth and straight ahead jazz, to rhythm and blues, jam band, folk, Americana, funk, fusion, and Latin, thousands of music lovers always relish in a colorful and diverse musical lineup.
