About Us


Jazz in the Gardens has easily become the City of Miami Gardens premiere entertainment event. Having 11 years of history under its belt, Jazz in the Gardens celebrates diversity, culture, and art through various genres of music. Event-goers find themselves entrenched in the rich beats and musical stylings that vibrate from the stage. The event not only brings world-renowned talent to Miami Gardens but it gives local artists the opportunity to be seen, heard and possibly discovered.


Jazz in the Gardens (JITG) music festival has been deemed as the undeniable “travel destination for  the spring.” JITG occurs annually in March and serves as the inaugural event of the highly anticipated music festival season. The JITG experience is complemented by scenic beaches, plentiful shopping, incredible golf courses, 5-star restaurants, and many other inviting attractions which make South Florida a “must visit” destination. The City of Miami Gardens and its partners are committed to producing an extraordinary experience for our supporters and sponsors.


The JITG brand has extended its reach domestically and internationally by way of an aggressive marketing campaign and meticulous attention taken by the sponsorship team. The JITG brand has been strategically featured in many major metropolitan markets including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Washington DC, Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Houston, Virginia, the Bahamas and South Florida, among others.


Sponsors have face-to-face activation opportunities at JITG and access to exceptional promotional strategies that utilize current social media platforms to reach our highly sought after audience of active consumers. Our goal is to create an atmosphere where sponsors exceed their promotional objectives and thrive! We are eager to partner with you and can’t wait to see you in the Gardens!

We are home to senators and teachers, seniors and students, doctors and lawyers, and up and coming entrepreneurs. Day by day, Miami Gardens is growing and cultivating possibilities for its residents and businesses.  With new businesses moving into the community, such as Top Golf, Starbucks and many other big name retailers, restaurants and entertainment venues, the City continues to thrive and has become one of the premier places to work, live, play and do business. We invite you to come grow with us and make the Gardens your home as well.
