The new Donor Program for the 41st Annual Detroit Jazz Festival has launched. The Foundation has changed the pricing and format of the VIP Programs, creating more options for individuals to personalize their Festival experience. These changes help maintain the Festival’s sustainability and its prominent position as the largest admission-free jazz festival in the world. Your support is integral in creating access for underserved communities to participate in the arts; and opportunities for hundreds of thousands of people to enjoy year-round musical initiatives with the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation. And for that we are most GRATEFUL to each of you—Thank You!
