About Us

The HSL Properties Tucson Jazz Festival has become a destination for jazz fans from across the country. The relatively warm weather and world-class acts bring new winter visitors to town. A full 50% of ticket buyers have come from out of town (50+ miles) for all three festivals, fulfilling Mayor Jonathan Rothschild’s vision of a “destination” festival. The festival also brings in presenting and promoting partners. Presenting partners this year are UA Presents and the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. The festival is also part of the Desert Song Festival, with two concerts included in their line-up.

Jazz in January is the non-profit organization which presents the annual HSL Properties Tucson Jazz Festival each January.

The 2020 dates for the festival are January 10-20, 2020, the centerpiece of which is the free daylong Downtown Jazz Fiesta on MLK day featuring two outdoor stages and performances at multiple venues in downtown Tucson. World-class jazz acts ranging from straight ahead to contemporary jazz are featured at The Fox Tucson Theatre, Club Congress and other downtown venues.
