The Monroeville Foundation is pleased to continue the tradition of the Monroeville Jazz Festival that began in 2002. That first year, the Jazz Festival was staged in the social hall of a community church in Monroeville and featured Pittsburgh’s own Joe Negri.
In 2004 the Monroeville Jazz Festival became a non-profit corporation. Over the years, the Monroeville Jazz Festival has been proud to be able to continue to promote awareness and appreciation for all forms of jazz through its annual one-day free, live concert.
