SPENARD JAZZ FEST IS...​

A multi-disciplinary arts festival that celebrates all musical genres and seeks to strengthen Alaska’s musician community. SJF focuses heavily on original music by Alaskan composers, while also bringing in incredible musicians from everywhere else around the world to collaborate with them.
