Become a Sponsor

The Summer Solstice Jazz Festival has grown and transformed over the years, but maintains its integrity and original mission: to deliver the best in local, regional, and national jazz to the community.

The SSJF relies on the generosity of supporters and sponsors. The festival is fully funded by sponsorships, donations, and grants. A donation to the SSJF allows us to advertise across the state, have quality sound and lighting, and most importantly, bring quality performers and pay them a fair wage. 

Several sponsorship packages are available:


Master of Jazz King of Jazz Duke of Jazz Silver Key Pewter Note Friend of Jazz
