Support the festival

There are many ways to support the Reno Jazz Festival and inspire the next generation of great jazz musicians. Join us in celebrating the Reno Jazz Festival’s educational and artistic endeavors.


A Reno Jazz Festival sponsorship helps make it possible for young people to experience a once-in-a-lifetime jazz-centric event — filled with education, performances, inspiration, interaction and camaraderie.


Each year nearly 100 volunteers help make the Festival a reality. Volunteers assist in each performance room during the Festival. If you’re interested in giving back and getting access to some of the best jazz music happening today, this is for you.

Email if you are interested in volunteering for this year's Festival.


Program advertisements help to inspire and educate the next generation of great jazz artists. As a Festival advertiser you will reach more than 2,000 Festival attendees while supporting this great art form, its artists and its 1000+ emerging jazz students from across Nevada and the Western United States.

Support the Endowment

The Larry Engstrom Endowment for the Advancement of Jazz was launched in honor of the retirement of Dr. Larry Engstrom. This endowment ensures a long-term future for the Reno Jazz Festival and the jazz program that Dr. Engstrom built at the University during his 34-year career.
