Tri-C JazzFest

Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland

The 43rd annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, presented by Keybank, is coming home to Playhouse Square June 23-25!

We're grateful to be working with our partners at Playhouse Square and looking forward to firing up Euclid Avenue again with music, food and dancing. Summer in downtown Cleveland officially begins with JazzFest.

The 2022 lineup features eight ticketed concerts in Playhouse Square’s historic theatres, with a special opening night concert — dedicated to retiring Tri-C President Alex Johnson — featuring Anthony Hamilton at Cleveland Public Auditorium’s Music Hall.

Festival highlights include homecoming concerts by native Clevelanders Joe Lovano and Sean Jones in addition to performances by vocalist Cyrille Aimée and legendary pianist Eddie Palmieri.

Guarantee yourself a seat at every show — and save some cash — by purchasing a full festival pass. The pass is $250 and includes a ticket to all ticketed indoor concerts, an invite to a passholder party and other perks and discounts. Passes are valued at $450+. Individual concert tickets are also available online now, or by calling 216-241-6000 starting Monday, April 18. Click the buttons below to buy!

Over the past four decades, the festival has become a cherished tradition for tens of thousands of music lovers. DownBeat Magazine describes JazzFest as offering "the type of diverse, top-tier talent typically found at a much larger festival, along with some adventurous programming spiced with compelling international flavors.

2021 Tri-C JazzFest Recap

Though Tri-C JazzFest traditionally takes place at Playhouse Square each summer, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the festival to go virtual in 2020 and move to Cain Park in September 2021 for a safer experience.

"It was eclecticism employed in the service of the continuum of the music. A continuum the dazzling Tri-C [Jazz]Fest both celebrated and joyously expanded. What more could you ask of a jazz festival?" -All About Jazz

"After a 2020 season of virtual performances, the festival returned to an all-star, in-person lineup this year. Ten mainstage acts made up the schedule for the 42nd annual Festival, and if there was a connecting thread through this diverse lineup, it was that artistry always came first." -Cleveland Classical
