Better every year! We're excited to host a 'coming-out-of-a-pandemic' festival and give your band the experience they need to keep moving forward.

Tent: Our main venue this year is a spacious tent with a stage and sound system.  That allows for outdoor ventilation but still some protection from the elements.

Judges: We are still planning a top rate judging panel and convenient on-stage clinics as we have done in the past.

Guest Artist:  We are still working out details for the guest artist and clinics this year, so stay tuned.


If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the department at (805) 546-3195.  We are committed to providing an excellent experience for all of our participants.  Thanks once again for choosing to attend the Central Coast Jazz Festival.  We look forward to seeing you March 11th and 12th.
