Winter Fest has turned into an opportunity to reprise the summer's most exciting acts, while reaching out to new audiences with a jazz-and-beyond sensibility.

–KQED Arts

The "cool" counterpart to Summer Fest

In its current form since 2013, Winter Fest presents established stars and fast-rising artists in a series of events in intimate indoor settings. Spanning genres like jazz, blues, R&B, soul, Latin, New Orleans and global music, the Fest has become known as one of the best series in Northern California to discover new artists who are on the way up.

Past artists include Gilles Peterson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Veronica Swift, Ben Allison, Kneedelus, Bria Skonberg, Kris Bowers, Kendrick Scott Oracle, Taylor McFerrin, Thundercat, La Santa Cecilia, Kathy Kosins, Robert Glasper Experiment and Vijay Iyer.
