Scat & Scramble Jazz Gala Brunch


Please join us to help our young people continue America’s true art form -- jazz.  Your attendance will support the future of live jazz by helping the ground breaking Litchfield Jazz Camp continue to build a scholarship fund for students in financial need. Each year we award 1/3 of our Jazz Campers need-based scholarships.

We celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Litchfield Jazz Camp at the Goshen Fairgrounds on Sunday, August 7th. The party is the event of the season and our first jazz brunch! Enjoy delicious food, Southern style by festival favorite O'Deens BBQ, Brother Thelonious Ale from North Coast Brewing Co., private reserve French wines courtesy of Vandoren Vineyards and music to match. Donald Harrison leads a big band of top jazz campers in music from the Big Easy. The Scat & Scramble is included in all Best Friends and Sunday Friends tickets, get yours today!

VIP on-site parking, up-front section seating, and access to the Sunset Lounge is included in Friends tickets.

Litchfield Performing Arts, the not-for-profit that runs the Festival and Camp, is dedicated to changing lives through the arts. The Litchfield Jazz Festival’s educational arm, Litchfield Jazz Camp, has been awarding need-based scholarships to students in financial need since its inaugural year in 1997. In past summers we have been able to award up to $100,000 in scholarships! Becoming a VIP Friend or Best Friend of the Festival or Backstage Pass holder will help us ensure we never have to turn away a child in need. Get your tickets TODAY! -
