The Skopje Jazz Festival is a jazz festival held in Skopje since 1982.

It is an institution which had consistent growth in the 1980s, 1990s and continues to grow every year. Even though it promoted a genre which at first glance looks distant from the local culture and tradition, it managed to attract a very large audience and to build a reputation as a prestigious festival not only in the Republic of Macedonia, but in a wider sense in the Balkans and in Europe. Throughout its history the festival has hosted prominent names from the jazz world such as: John McLaughlin, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Joe Zawinul, Dave Holland, Charlie Haden, Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Antony Braxton, Ray Charles, Cubanismo, D. D. Jackson, Sierra Maestra, Marshal Allen, Rabih Abou-Khalil, Gotan Project, Maria Joao, Toni Kitanovski, Al di Meola, Youssou N'Dour, Brazilian Girls, and many more.

The festival is part of the European jazz network and the European forum of World music festivals.
