Our North Carolina Jazz Festival patrons are the backbone of our jazz festival—the extra that they contribute to our finances make it possible for us “to go out on a limb” and hire the finest of traditional jazz musicians for our festival each year.
The price of a patron ticket is $200. or $225. The $200. Patron Badge allows you entry to Friday and Saturday night’s 4_ hr. concerts with preferred, reserved seating, name in the program and the Patron’s Musical Brunch on Saturday morning. This brunch is a unique part of the North Carolina Jazz Festival, as not only are the patrons treated to a delightful brunch, while listening to all of the invited Allstar Musicians play their favorite music, but an extra added attraction is the Patron Jam. During the last hour of the brunch the patrons, who are also musicians, are invited to sit in with the Allstars for a rousing musical treat enjoyed by all! This is also a time when patrons and musicians have the opportunity to socialize and get to know each other. The $225. Patron Badge buys you all of the above plus admission to the Thursday evening Special Event concert where we feature different styles of jazz with some very special guest artists along with some of the invited Allstars.
NCJF is a non-profit organization, staffed solely by volunteers.
