Festa do Jazz is a Jazz meeting point in Portugal that has been held since 2003, bringing together different audiences, artists, agents and Jazz students from all over the country, through a unifying space that serves the different Portuguese Jazz communities, strengthening projects and artists involved and contributing to the building of critical thought.

More than a simple music festival, Festa do Jazz not only presents the biggest names in national and international Jazz scene, but also has a professional approach with the creation of the Encontro Nacional de Escolas (National Schools Meeting), a one of its kind competition, or its annual awards. Also, the artistic residencies and masterclasses with internationally renowned guests, or the creation of formal and informal networks, provide Festa do Jazz with a constant awareness of community participation.
