Festival Sponsorships

Festival adjudicators award over $6,500 in individual merit awards and scholarships to outstanding and promising festival participants each year. The personal recognition encourages young artists to continue their music education, and the scholarships help young musicians pay for private music lessons and / or attend the Teagarden Jazz Camp. The Sacramento Jazz Education Foundation sustains these honors through the generosity of its sponsors and donors. Their contributions also enable the festival to waive registration fees for bands that otherwise couldn't attend.

The Teagarden Jazz Festival began in 2006 with a $10,000 start-up grant from the late CEO of See's Candies Chuck Huggins, and has since reached these milestones:

  • More than 3,000 band students have attended
  • Every participating band has participated in clinics and workshops
  • Over $4,000 in festival fees have been waived for bands with financial need
  • More than $17,000 in awards and scholarships have been awarded.
