The first Hartland JazzFest, a one-day outdoor festival of live jazz performances, will take place on Saturday the 23rd of June from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Hartland, Vermont. Over 40 musicians, including nationally recognized guests and favorite local jazz performers, will grace the outdoor stage at Hartland’s Foster Meadow Field.
With food vendors on site, tent shelters, an adjacent playground, and a festive atmosphere, JazzFest is an event for the whole family. Festival-goers are invited to bring a picnic and chairs. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Admission is by donation ($5 suggested per person).
JazzFest is produced by Hartland Community Arts with collaboration and support from Interplay Jazz and Arts and the Hartland Recreation Department.
