The Hyde Park Jazz Festival is a FREE event. We ask that attendees able to do so, consider a $10 donation per person to keep it free for all.


The Hyde Park Jazz Festival is a collaborative platform dedicated to supporting the presentation and ongoing development of jazz, particularly on the South Side of Chicago. We do this by creating opportunities for a diverse community of listeners to engage with the music and its creators, and by working with artists, organizational partners, and networks to celebrate the rich tradition of jazz and to support the development of new work and ideas.

The Hyde Park Jazz Festival on Chicago’s Culture Coast is co-produced with the Hyde Park Jazz Society. The 17th annual Hyde Park Jazz Festival is made possible through the support of lead and founding sponsor, the University of Chicago’s Office of Civic Engagement. Other sponsors include the David & Reva Logan Center for the Arts, the University of Chicago Medical Center, and many other corporations, organizations, individual donors, and volunteers.

  • We believe the South Side of Chicago is an extraordinary place. We celebrate the culture of the South Side by bringing people together for a free annual jazz festival.

  • Jazz is rooted in the Black American experience. We celebrate the legacy of jazz on the South Side, particularly the continuum of Black music, and work to create sustainable support systems for the present and future of the music and its communities.

  • Jazz is many things to many people. We believe deeply in this diversity and work to build programming that allows for this diversity to thrive in both artistic pursuit and audience interest.

  • We look to artists and the community to help us shape opportunities for building new possibilities for collaboration in numerous forms and in unexpected ways.

  • We are builders. We find opportunities to leverage what exists and create what is needed.

  • We listen to communities and to artists. Our work is to facilitate opportunities for connection and ongoing development of the art form.

  • We trust artists. We believe they determine where the music is going and we support their journey.

  • We collaborate. We recognize there is a lot happening on the South Side and in Chicago. We look to partner in meaningful ways to create programs and partnerships that are more than the sum of their parts.

  •  We know jazz is a thriving art form. We work to illuminate the creative pursuits of jazz artists by building unique, dynamic platforms to support the work of Chicago jazz artists and beyond.
