Only with your support, does the festival have the opportunity for an enormous impact on the cultural and economic development of our region. This support will help us to defer costs for production, artist fees, advertising, and promotional expenses. In addition, your contribution will be applied toward matching funds, provided by local and state funding organizations. Together, as a united team effort, we can make artistic magic happen for Scranton. How incredible would it be to see this festival, in time, be considered a major summer destination place for the jazz/blues and world beat community? Only with your help will that magic happen.

Joan Carol Halle 
Jan 26, 1944 - May 18, 2023

A long time SJF volunteer and sponsor. 
Many of us remember Joan Halle volunteering her time the first weekend of August each and every year. 
She volunteered her time to The Scranton Jazz Festival and was a generous sponsor as well.
Both Joan and best friend Delores helped manage the festival merchandise and conducted the sales for all CDs at the SJF.
Joan truly loved the music, the atmosphere and the jazz festival weekend.  We will miss her greatly, but never forgotten. Thank You Joan.
