Founded in 1996, JazzFest West has strived to bring world-class Jazz musicians to Southern California music fans. 2016 will be our 20th Anniversary.  Throughout the years, we have called many places our home (Central Park & Brookside Park in Pasadena, then the LA County Arboretum in Arcadia) but for the past 9 years, the beautiful Frank G. Bonelli Park in San Dimas is where it all happens!

Bonelli Regional Park is a scenic 1,800 acre facility featuring a 250 acre lake with 14 miles of multi-use trails. Home to the Raging Waters waterpark, Bonelli Park offers a wide variety of recreational activities, including boating, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, family and group picnicking, nature walks, hiking, jogging, and biking. There are also concessionaires offering RV Camping, Hot Tubs, Wedding Facilities, and Horse Back Riding.  Throughout the year, annual special events are conducted including fishing tournaments, concerts, triathlons, water sports and cultural events.

JazzFest West has been honored to feature an incredible mix of contemporary jazz, classic R&B and soul artists at the festival, including Charlie Wilson, Jill Scott, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Maze ft. Frankie Beverly, Teena Marie, Boney James, Erykah Badu, George Duke and The O’Jays. Attendees will enjoy two stages of live music, delicious eats from the International Food Court, shopping in the Vendor Village and a dance party all day long!
