Festival Story:

The Ballard Jazz Festival began in 2003 as a joint venture between Seattle’s Origin Records and the Ballard Chamber of Commerce to create a community-building cultural event and a showcase for distinctive Northwest jazz artists. In 2007, Origin Records created Origin Music Productions, LLC to carry on the festival and was subsequently awarded the 2007 “Great Neighbor, Great Business Award” by Home Street Bank for its community-building work. Along with multiple nominations, festival performances won “Northwest Concert of the Year” in 2006 and 2008 at the Earshot Jazz Awards. Origin Music Productions prides itself on its commitment to channeling most revenue from the festival straight back into the Ballard community and to Seattle’s performing artists.
