The Litchfield Jazz Festival is takes place in early August each summer at the Goshen Fair Grounds. There is an opening night gala, three days of jazz, a craft show. There is a wide variety of food vendors. You can pack a picnic lunch but no alcohol. They sell beer and wine at the event. The Litchfield Jazz camp performs on a second stage by students from the Litchfield Jazz Camp. There are also after parties and jam sessions at local restaurants which are free and open to the public. The Main Stage performances are held under a large tent. You can buy tent tickets or sit on the lawn. I do both. It is nice to enjoy the sun and go in to the tent to get up close to some of the big acts. A great weekend of music!
