Jazz in the Park is the only festival in Romania that grants non-mandatory tickets. The access to every in-the-park concert is free and the non-mandatory ticket is the way in which you can get involved and support creativity.
Depending on the sum you choose to donate, you will get a bracelet, available in three colours:
- The Blue Bracelet – 10 lei – the Supporter’s Bracelet
- The Yellow Bracelet – 30 lei – Jazz Fan’s Bracelet
- The Red Bracelet – 100 lei – the Super Jazz Fan’s Bracelet.
The money we raise will be used to finance interesting and creative projects that in our opinion deserve the opportunity to be turned into reality. The artists that created all of these projects deserve to be encouraged and we will try our best to support them with your help.
How do I get the bracelet?
- Buy a non-mandatory ticket online from here, Eventim or BiletMaster, select the sum you are willing to offer. You can get the bracelet at anytime in exchange of this ticket.
- Tell the others about the fund – either online or offline – use the hashtags #IBoughtTheBracelet #JazzintheParkFund (maybe add a picture of your bracelet) to let the others know they can support local artists
Let us tell you a little bit about the projects you can choose to donate money for.
