About Jazz in the ‘Hoods

Providing exciting, meaningful citywide partnerships that help develop and brand local DC clubs, restaurants, galleries, hotels, arts centers, public spaces and more.

Jazz in the 'Hoods presented by Events DC is a major feature of the DC Jazz Festival, an exciting partnership with local clubs, restaurants, hotels, galleries, places of worship, and performing arts spaces in celebration of jazz in our nation’s capital. Jazz in the ‘Hoods (JHoods) highlights DC as a vibrant cultural center in dozens of venues in 25+ neighborhoods citywide. JHoods events attract an increasingly large number of residents as well as tourists—adding revenue streams to clubs, restaurants and hotels, and boosting the local business economy—and, overall, encourage patronage of establishments that present jazz. Previous JHoods have attracted over 82,000 across DC neighborhoods, with adverting and promotional efforts reaching over 24 million people across 16 prominent, diversified and respected publications.
