The Vanport Jazz Festival honors the city of Vanport and the voices that formed Portland's jazz community. Near the site of the historic 1948 flood, the event transforms Colwood Golf Course into a cultural revival, welcoming nationally renowned artists and breathing new life into Portland jazz.
This year’s festival will feature a new opening night event on Friday, August 5, 2022, featuring jazz and R&B, followed up by the traditional Main Event on Saturday, August 6, 2022. You may purchase a single ticket to either day or buy a package that includes tickets to each event.
