Launched in 2003, the Highland Jazz & Blues Festival has grown from a handful of bands and a crowd of 500 to 1,000 attendees to a gathering that includes two stages, ten bands, posters, food and art sales, t-shirts, and 10,000 music fans in the Highland area’s beautiful Columbia Park. The annual event is organized as a gift to the community from the Highland Area Partnership and proceeds raised are used to bring the festival back the following year.
