Notre Dame's Collegiate Jazz Festival began in 1959 and is the oldest and most prestigious college jazz festival in the nation with a rich history of great collegiate bands, and a long line of incredible clinicians. The event brings together collegiate bands from across the nation to perform in a non-competitive setting. A group of world-class, professional jazz musicians provide helpful comments to the college bands and top off the evening with an amazing concert at DeBartolo Performing Arts Center on the Notre Dame campus. It is our honor to host these excellent bands and clinicians once again in 2024 for CJF's 66th year.
