Beginning in 1996, JazzFest West has strived to bring world-class Jazz musicians to Southern California music fans. Throughout the years, we have called many places our home (Central Park and Rose Bowl Canyon in Pasadena, The LA County Arboretum and Botanic Gardens in Arcadia) but for the past 5 years, the beautiful Bonelli Park in San Dimas is where it all happens!

Reaching record breaking crowds in recent years, JazzFest West has evolved into the hottest party of the summer for Jazz fans of all ages. Big names such as Stevie Wonder, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Maze ft. Frankie Beverly, Teena Marie, Erykah Badu and The O’Jays have graced stages. Attendees enjoy two stages of live music, delicious eats from the International Food Court, shopping in the Vendor Village and a dance party all day long!
