Ballard Jazz Festival
|Address:||8649 Island Drive South |

The Ballard Jazz Festival started with a single-night "Jazz Walk" featuring 5 groups in 5 venues for a single ticket. Over the past 12 years we've expanded to 5 events over 4 days, hosted in 15 venues and featuring over 100 musicians performing (primarily Northwest musicians). We've partnered with The Nordic Heritage Museum to host our Mainstage Concert and have created "Ballard-centric" and family-friendly events such as our "Swedish Pancake Jazz Brunch and Classic Volvo Car Show." The festival is now internationally recognized as one of the premier jazz events in the Northwest.
