Be a Sponsor


Summer Fest is a special celebration of the diversity of jazz, its cultural significance, and its power to bring thousands of people together for three days, August 13-15, 2021. This year’s Fest has taken an important special significance as one of the first events of it kind to be held as the pandemic has waned, allowing people to come together for their first joyful, shared live music experience in well over a year.

With nonstop concerts featuring jazz, salsa, blues and Latin and related genres, the Fest will boast five indoor and outdoor stages centered around the heart of downtown San Jose and draw throngs of visitors through extensive regional and national marketing.

Sponsorships are great ways for companies to increase brand awareness or create a unique business-to-customer experience at the festival. We’ll customize the sponsorship to meet your needs with media impressions, networking opportunities through VIP events and on-site presence with a booth, signage, stage announcements and more.


Looking for an exciting way to thank your employees or entertain your best clients? Take advantage of an exclusive VIP hospitality area designed just for you with seating, linens, flower centerpieces, security, bartenders and more. Available Friday night, and all day Saturday or Sunday at the Main Stage.

You can also purchase corporate group tickets, which can be provided before the festival to distribute to clients or employees.
