Yellowstone Jazz Festival turns 25

Jul 6, 2012

The Yellowstone Jazz Festival will celebrate its 25th anniversary next week in Cody. In 1988, a group of jazz enthusiasts in Cody created the festival.  Since then, it has grown in size and stature. This year, returning artists include the Yellowstone Big Band and Sunny Wilkinson. Board Member Neil Harris says dedicated organizers have kept the festival going strong."For a jazz festival to continue or 25 years in Wyoming is pretty unusual, but we have a dedicated group of people that have dedicated their time on the jazz festival committee over the year,” Harris says.Performers will teach aspiring young musicians during the festival music camp.  The festival runs Thursay and Friday.  For a schedule of events and more information, visit
