The goal of the Annapolis Jazz & Roots Festival is to foster an appreciation for cultural diversity and artistic excellence in a cordial and inviting atmosphere. Our inspiring, educational and fun activities entertain participants of many interests, ages and backgrounds. We are especially interested in teaming up with state, county and city government, non-profit organizations and businesses, schools and libraries. Our aim is to amplify the effects of existing programs and services which have the potential for greater public access.
