Mt. Hood Jazz Festival

  • In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, MHCC has also had to make the decision to cancel the Mt. Hood Jazz Festival and all associated events in order to preserve the health and well-being of our campus community and promote social distancing. We will be excited to bring the festival back to the college April 23-25, 2021.

    Festival organizers are currently looking at the potential for livestreaming some of the performances and workshops that were part of the festival lineup. Livestreaming information will be shared on the festival's Facebook page if that can happen, so be on the lookout for more information in the coming days and weeks. The college and festival organizers would like to thank the community and sponsors for their support of the festival and look forward to holding it at the college again at a time that is more conducive to enjoying jazz as it was meant to be enjoyed - together.
