For 24 years, the Blue Jay Jazz Foundation has brought Jazz to Blue Jay. Nestled in the heart of the San Bernardino mountains, Blue Jay, and her sister cities from Lake Arrowhead to Big Bear, have enjoyed world renowned grammy winning artist for three straight weekends in August. Jazz in all it’s forms, shapes and sizes have thrilled audiences year after year. Thanks to the continuing support of our community, the Blue Jay Jazz Festival will continue to reach new music fans and celebrate the traditions of the one and only true American art form, Blues & Jazz, for many years to come. And what’s really exciting is, the best has yet to come… Stay Tuned!

2016 is already shaping up to be a landmark year for the Blue Jay Jazz Festival and the Blue Jay Jazz Foundation! We hope that you stay tuned, we will be updating the site with more news and information we are sure will put you in anticipation for next August. Fall, winter and spring are bringing changes, not only to the landscape around you, but to your favorite mountain Jazz fest as well.

The 2015 Blue Jay Jazz Festival, brought some old, some new and the always familiar expectation of excellence! We took a big step this year and met a new challenge by moving from our traditional Thursday nights, to the more appealing and accessible Saturday nights. As you might expect, attendance was high! This years performing artist; Lao Tizer ‘Featuring Karen Briggs’, Poncho Sanchez and Pete Escovedo, left a lasting impression on our decision. They were fired up for everyone who came “ready for the weekend”! It looks like Saturday nights are here to stay!
