Sponsor The 11th Annual Montavilla Jazz Festival

The Event

Montavilla Jazz showcases Portland’s incredible jazz scene and the vibrant Montavilla community. Our three-day music festival has carved a niche for itself in Portland’s nationally renowned summer festival season by featuring Portland’s world-class jazz artists while maintaining a focus on community.

Montavilla Jazz’s 11th Annual Festival runs August 30th through September 1st, 2024 with concerts across the city featuring original jazz by world-class local artists. We are inviting Portland residents and business owners to join us as we present the best of Portland jazz in Montavilla and beyond!

The Cause

Supporting local jazz artists is at the core of our mission. Montavilla Jazz pays artists a fair wage to create and perform new music at the Montavilla Jazz Festival. In addition, we provide paid opportunities for local jazz artists to build an audience for their artistry by sharing their passion for jazz through work in neighborhood schools and throughout the community. 

In 2019 we launched Montavilla Jazz Artist-in-Residence that teaches the history of jazz and its cultural significance. In 2020 we revived the before-school jazz band program at Mt. Tabor Middle School. Both programs are funded in part through festival ticket revenue.

We believe that communities deserve to experience the joy of making and experiencing music, and through Montavilla Jazz––a 501(c)(3) non profit organization–our sponsors will be able to directly make an impact.

Why Sponsor?

With twin goals of promoting Portland-made music and highlighting the Montavilla neighborhood, Montavilla Jazz events offer a unique opportunity to our sponsors. Contributions go to both the production of events, including fair wages for our artists, and Montavilla Jazz education and community building programs, and our mission includes raising the profiles of our sponsors through event promotions.

For contributing to Montavilla Jazz, our sponsors will receive acknowledgment in our marketing efforts. Your brand can reach our valuable network of jazz fans and neighborhood groups through our promotional efforts (live-streamed to global audiences), social media posts and email blasts (more than 35,000 recipients), and event coverage from our local radio partners (more than 200,000 weekly listeners). Our benefits include logo placements in online and printed materials and on-stage recognition.

Sponsorship with Montavilla Jazz creates a powerful, mutually beneficial cycle. As our events grow and gain attention for our community, local businesses will receive attention and growth, enabling ever greater events, enhanced music education opportunities, and a thriving community for years to come.
