and All those WHO MADE IT HAPPEN!

The Jazz on the Green story is an amazing one of courage, dedication, expansion, loyalty, teamwork, creativity and community. Those who produced the event through a great deal of hard work, vision and follow-through made sure that the people of Southwest Florida had a reason to converge and celebrate through music, art and good times.

Jazz on the Green brought the best in smooth jazz music, fabulous food and refreshments, fine art, fun activities and a feeling of community to a sophisticated and festive audience that came from all over the world to Southwest Florida since 1997. The final event was produced in 2009.

In Memory of Bill Taylor, Chairman of Jazz on the Green 2001-2009


"I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I truly enjoyed Jazz on the Green!  I was lucky to win a Dream 107.1 prize package Friday morning which included tickets to this great event. Not only was the entertainment FANTASTIC, we couldn't get over how organized everything was from beginning to end!  We  purchased some great merchandise to help support such a wonderful cause! Already looking forward to next year! Thank you for such a great evening."  ~Ross & Roxanne Fechter :)

"Really enjoyed the entertainment as always. The few drops of rain didn't run anyone off. Well organized and I must say the "deluxe" bathrooms were wonderful. Thanks for the upgrade."  ~Judy Morohovich

"My husband and I wanted to let you folks know that Saturday was absolutely the BEST concert we've ever been to!  With only a few minor problems, the venue was terrific and the music was fabulous.  There are not enough superlatives to describe it. Thanks for preparing such a great day."  ~Kendell Zarrella

"Just wanted to say thank you for another wonderful show. This is only our third year but as long as you are doing a Jazz on the Green, we will be there. We really appreciate all the hard work all of you do putting on a show of this magnitude and providing such wonderful musicians. Thanks again."  ~Kathi & Steve Bringman

Jazz On The Green was not just a good time; itís was a good cause and a non-profit organization that raised both money and awareness for children and the environment, through the Southwest Florida Childrenís Charities. The Children's Charities of Southwest Florida had a mission to further the welfare of children and families in our community!


We'd like to thank the Southwest Florida community, our sponsors, vendors, volunteers and committee members for coming together to create this amazing event year after year!
