ABOUT THE JAZZ FEST
Now in its 32nd year, the Isthmus Jazz Fest is an iconic summer event for Dane County. In 2018, the Wisconsin Union Theater and Greater Madison Jazz Consortium joined forces to expand the Festival from its traditional two days on the Memorial Union Terrace to include a week of jazz programs throughout the community.
The expanded Festival provides the time to explore jazz music in a variety of ways, including educational talks and presentations, innovative multi-genre collaborative projects, film, AND live jazz performances by top local and guest musicians. Almost all of the programs are free or low cost, and events will be held in locations all over Madison.
