Bellevue Jazz and Blues Festival

The Bellevue Jazz & Blues Festival celebrates community and the creative power of music. The festival hosts over 40 live shows at various venues across the city. ​We invite the community to explore and share their passion for live jazz and blues at the Eastside's premier showcase for top national and regional artists.

Established in 2008, the festival is a cultural and community event that attracts national artists, showcases regional talent and draws diverse audiences. Headlining artists are selected in collaboration with John Gilbreath, executive director of Earshot Jazz.

Past featured artists include Branford Marsalis, Booker T. Jones, Shemekia Copeland, Poncho Sanchez, Dianne Reeves, Bill Frisell, Charles Lloyd, Terence Blanchard, Hubert Laws, Mingus Big Band, Spanish Harlem Orchestra and Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra. The event was renamed the Bellevue Jazz & Blues Festival in 2015.
