The Idyllwild Arts Foundation proudly presents the 23nd annual Jazz in the Pines Festival this August 19th, 20th and 21st, featuring over two dozen bands. Performers and fans of jazz, blues, and R&B have a breathtaking mountain campus to themselves after the departure of the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program's thousands of arts-lovers and before the first semester of the Foundation's residential high school, Idyllwild Arts Academy.
Jazz in the Pines will have something for you no matter what kind of jazz you love—with every single note performed brilliantly by longtime favorites as well as brand-new faces.
You can enjoy the Festival with a one- or two-day General Admission package, or with the Patrons Package that enables you to raise your Festival experience to the highest level.
Browse the Festival Marketplace for festival t-shirts, hats, and posters, and also for jewelry, pottery, and other crafts created by the Idyllwild area's many outstanding artists.
Idyllwild's stunning natural beauty is complemented by plenty of friendly accommodations that can fit every budget, and by campgrounds that will bring you close to our wildlife.
