SJZ Summer Fest Kickoff Fundraiser

May 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for a 2-alarm evening as we celebrate the beginning of Summer Fest Season while raising funds to continue our support of Bay Area musicians in 2025!

This year, we host the event at the San Jose Fire Museum, a national landmark dedicated to San Jose’s storied firefighting history. You’ll be greeted by historic engines as you enter this icon of Streamline Moderne architecture to find historic memorabilia; performances by our High School All Stars U19s and Jazz Aid Fund and 2023 Fest artist Chika Di; delicious food by Summer Fest VIP food provider Hunger at Home; hosted bar with beer and wine; distinctive auction items and a sparkling crowd.

VIP attendees get early entry, a dedicated food station and the opportunity to meet artists from the program. Silent and live auctions benefit the Jazz Aid Fund, which provides direct support to musicians and stimulates the creation of vital new works.

$175 VIP Ticket
with early entry at 6:30pm, dedicated food station, reserved seating and an exclusive meet-and-greet with Jazz Aid Fund artists
