The nonprofit Arlington Jazz Festival is coordinated with assistance from Arlington-based Morningside Music Studio ( under the direction of Dan Fox an Arlington resident, who is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator.

The festival itself has been held annually in Arlington since 2012, usually in April to recognize Jazz Appreciation Month in the U.S., as well as timing the week to coincide with Boston’s Jazz Week and International Jazz Day. This year, festival plans needed to be adjusted, because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since 2018, the Arlington Jazz Festival has also embarked on presenting a series of additional workshops and concerts throughout the year. The 2020 Arlington Jazz Festival is funded in part by the Arlington Cultural Council, a local agency that is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
