MISSION STATEMENT

PDX Jazz, a non-profit cultural arts organization founded in 2003 in partnership with Travel Portland, produces the annual Portland Jazz Festival.

PDX Jazz is dedicated to curating performances at various Portland venues throughout the year such as the current monthly PDX Jazz @ The Mission Theater series.
