Spenard Jazz Fest 2016

Spenard Jazz Fest is a local arts festival inspired by and celebrating jazz music. Spenard Jazz Fest nurtures creativity and collaboration across multiple art forms and in particular the creation of original work by established and emerging composers in Alaska. Now in it's 9th year, Spenard Jazz Fest offers a host of exciting opportunities to get your jazz fix through all kinds of fun events between May 20th and June 5th 2016.

Spenard JazzFest (SJF) is a grassroots organization run largely by volunteers. SJF addresses the expressed need in our community for a performance platform for original work in the broad genre of jazz (read: traditional or unconventional collaborative creation of art and music containing elements of improvisation), a nourishing environment for creativity, an appreciative and attentive audience, and the ever present need for good music and good vibes! After 9 years of running a successful ever- evolving creative festival SJF is once again happy to announce NEW features : Neighborhood House and Yard Concerts ! 7 of them in total !!!!  New Main Stage Venue ! 49th State Brewing Co on 3rd St btw F and G. NEW Community Partners!!  Anchorage Neighborhood Housing Authority and KeysToLife/Carnegie Lullaby Project.  We are allready revving up for our 10th Year Anniversary -  We're already making plans for an even bigger, better anniversary festival in 2017 .  

Thank you to all our sponsors and supporters for making 9 years of Spenard JazzFest  possible ! (List below is continually updated)
