Please join Brooklyn's Urban Meadow Community Garden for the 7th annual Red Hook Jazz Festival!

As part of its continuing grassroots tradition, the RHJF is a 100% volunteer-run event that remains committed to being uniquely artist and community focused.  It is dedicated to the support of the great music of jazz, the musicians who perform it and to bringing new individuals to the singular community-run resource that is the Urban Meadow Community Garden.

This dedication is clearly shared by those audiences who have come from around the world over the last six years to the Waterfront District of Red Hook, Brooklyn to hear exceptional artistry performed in a comfortable, unpretentious and beautiful urban ecological education center and botanical oasis near the docks along the East River.

2014 promises to be the most exciting year yet for the Red Hook Jazz Festival, featuring ten remarkable ensembles, all representing the incredible variety and history of this great American music.
