Presented by the Dominican ministry of tourism, the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival is a renowned, annual cultural event. Bringing jazz to a diverse crowd of music lovers comprised of local residents and tourists alike, the 2013 event enjoyed record-breaking attendance with a combined audience of over 10,000 people.

The festival also brings music education to the region through its affiliation with FEDUJAZZ, a non-profit organization that conducts musical workshops for youth. Motivating and developing young artistic talent, FEDUJAZZ has partnered with local organizations such as the Dream Project and Sosua City Council to further assist in the education of Dominican children, using jazz as the teaching platform.

The Dominican Republic Jazz Festival is known for its legendary performers and seaside locale with its mix of tropical climate, Caribbean culture and a Latin take on the international jazz scene. The festival is free, but VIP tickets are available for pre-sale, benefiting FEDUJAZZ.
