Celebrating more than 50 seasons of concerts under the stars, Britt Festivals is the Pacific Northwest’s premier outdoor summer performing arts festival. Located in the historic 1850s Gold Rush town of Jacksonville, Britt presents a series of summer concerts featuring world-class artists in classical music, jazz, bluegrass, rock, blues, folk, pop and country music. Britt’s performance venue is a naturally formed amphitheater set among majestic ponderosa pines and native madrones on the beautiful hillside estate of 19th century photographer Peter Britt. Music lovers travel from all over the West to enjoy Britt’s outstanding performances, spectacular scenery and casual, relaxing atmosphere. Britt patrons are encouraged to come early and enjoy a picnic and pre-concert music on the scenic hillside amphitheater.
Britt’s summer season is announced each spring, with 30-40 concerts offered every year. Britt is a convenient day’s drive from Seattle or San Francisco, and is located just five miles west of Medford and 15 miles north of Ashland.
