SHCF was happy to help with bringing Foundry Hall’s inaugural Jazz Fest to life. The event was a huge success drawing crowds of over 600 to the festival. Is believed that this 2-day jazz event brought together one of the largest racially diverse audiences in South Haven outside of SHPS events. Planning for next year is already underway.
