Jazz in the 'Hoods™

Jazz in the 'Hoods, a major feature of the DC Jazz Festival, is an exciting partnership with the local commmunity in celebration of jazz in our nation’s capital. Jazz in the 'Hoods (JiH) highlights DC as a vibrant cultural center in more than 40 venues in over 21 neighborhoods around the city.  JiH serves as a great platform to educate the community about jazz introducing residents and tourists to this great art form. Audience members learn about jazz styles, artists, and the history of this music. JiH events attract an increasingly large number of local residents as well as tourists—adding revenue streams to clubs, restaurants and hotels, and boosting the local business economy—and, overall, encourage patronage of establishments that present jazz.
