Every year in Moscow, the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival takes place at the University of Idaho. Dating back to the 1960s, this event features many students, artists, workshops, and more. The festival always takes place the last weekend of February. This festival has featured many of the industry’s most famous jazz artists, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Freddie Hubbard. Tickets are a little bit on the pricier side, a regular adult price ranging anywhere from $25-$50 for an individual night. However, these tickets give you access to the performances on all four stages and access to the largest jazz festival west of the Mississippi.
