Krakowskie Zaduszki Jazzowe - the All Souls Jazz Festival in Krakow

Very likely Krakow's All Souls Jazz Festival, known in Poland as Krakowskie Zaduszki Jazzowe is Europe's oldest jazz festival. It has attracted both Polish and foreign jazzmen as well as jazz fans every year in early November for over half century. Music has been changing in keeping with current trends, also venues and performers, but some features remain constant. One is stylistic diversity, another the tradition of a jazz Holy Mass that takes place in one of Krakow's ancient churches on the All Souls Day, November 2, or one of the following evenings. 


The All Souls Festival is organized by the Krakow chapter of the Polish Jazz Association. The organizer’s postal address is Polskie Stowarzyszenie Jazzowe, Oddzial w Krakowie. Phone: (+48) 603251092, email:
