About the Festival

This Northern New Mexico Jazz Festival is just over a two-week-long event that’s hosted by the Lensic Performing Arts Center and the Outpost Performance Space. These two venues are in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, respectively. This festival is a collaborative project that aims to give Northern New Mexico residents and visitors alike easy access to world-renowned jazz artists. Over this 17-day period, attendees can choose performances from a variety of jazz masters like Cha Wa. Every July for 14 years, this New Mexico jazz workshop has made musical entertainment and culture easily accessible. However, this annual festival is just the tip of the arts and culture iceberg in Northern New Mexico. The Santa Fe Opera House is another popular musical attraction. If you can’t make it for the jazz festival in July, be sure to see other fantastic live music while you’re here!
