Clearwater Jazz Holiday is a four-day, four-night live music festival that started in 1979. The music festival has evolved from a series of concerts on the back of a flatbed truck and at venues around Clearwater into an annual, international, music festival that draws tens of thousands of visitors each year to beautiful Coachman Park in Clearwater, against the backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico, warm breezes, brilliant sunsets, and one of the world’s greatest beaches. The festival features a combination of legendary and relevant musical artists and a gathering of an amazingly diverse fan base.
Over its history the festival has featured legendary jazz musicians such as Woody Herman, Buddy Rich, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Mann, Dave Brubeck, Tito Puente, Stephan Grappelli, Stan Getz, and the Count Basie Orchestra. Today the festival features jazz as well as a variety of popular and traditional genres. The festival is organized and supported by the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Foundation.
