About Us

The people who put on the John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival have one goal. Members of the Friends of John Coltrane, Inc., strive to make the Coltrane Jazzfest the premiere entertainment destination in the Southeast. This is the seventh year for the annual festival held over Labor Day Weekend.

Members of the hosting organization work tirelessly to ensure the very best artist, representing contemporary, modern and mainstream jazz, are brought to the stage each year. The Photo Gallery shows the successful results of their dedication.   Throughout its history, members have engaged leaders of the business, arts, civic and nonprofit communities to celebrate the legacy of iconic saxophonist and composer John Coltrane.

The hard work is worth every bit of the sweat and yes, even occasionally, a tear or two.  Thanks to you, the reward comes with the growing audience attendance and national recognition.   Thank you for visiting out website.  We hope you will join us in High Point, NC on September 2-3, 2017 for the the seventh annual John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival.
