In 2018 Palm Beach International Jazz Festival Organization, LLC (100% minority-owned; African-American woman) was founded by international jazz vocalist and recording artist Yvette Norwood-Tiger. Her mission for the Palm Beach International Jazz Festival is to present highly acclaimed jazz artists from around the world and South Florida in a wonderful live concert setting in Palm Beach County. Each year, the Palm Beach International Jazz Festival hires over 30 musicians, in addition to technical and front-of-house staff during the one-day event. Our wish is to continue to support jazz musicians by holding the festival in 2021 - especially during a time when live jazz music is being drastically affected by the pandemic.  This year, due to COVID-19 constraints, festival seating capacity and tickets will be significantly reduced to give concert goers safe distance and comfort while enjoying live jazz in a concert setting. In joint celebration of UNESCO's International Jazz Day which is chaired by jazz great Herbie Hancock, the 3rd annual Palm Beach International Jazz Festival is scheduled for April 24, 2021, at the Raymond F. Kravis Center - Rinker Playhouse.
