Jazz on State came together last year with community support during a very challenging time to continue the tradition of free music downtown.


Our Mission

  • To continue the free outdoor music series tradition started by Concerts on the Square in 1983 as a way to invite people to come and experience what downtown Madison has to offer

  • Reacquaint patrons with the small independent businesses in the State Street area (who are still recovering from the pandemic)

  • Promote a diverse and inclusive environment for musicians, patrons and the community
