About the Chicago Asian American Jazz Festival

Initiated in 1996, the Annual Chicago Asian American Jazz Festival was created in order to meet the needs for a venue to present creative works that address the Asian American experience. Inspired by the San Francisco Asian American Jazz Festival, the Chicago AAJF has grown into the largest event of its kind and is a greatly anticipated highlight of Chicago’s vibrant cultural landscape. Though international in scope, the Chicago AAJF is committed to its Chicago roots, presenting resident Chicago artists as well as artists of national and international acclaim whose work advances the understanding of the Asian American cultural perspective.

The 10th Anniversary of the Annual Chicago Asian American Jazz Festival is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council, the Illinois Humanities Council, Meet The Composer’s Creative Connections Program and the dedication and generosity of our friends in the community.

The 10th Annual Chicago Asian American Jazz Festival is a program of Asian Improv aRts Midwest (AIRMW). AIRMW is an Illinois-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to the presentation, development, study and documentation of the Asian American cultural arts.
