(Cleveland) -- Two major Cleveland festivals will be available for free, thanks to the generosity of the Cleveland Foundation.

Foundation officials say they'll pay for tickets to the Cleveland International Film Festival on March 24th and the Tri-C JazzFest on June 27th and 28th.

The gifts are being made to the community to celebrate the Cleveland Foundation's 100th anniversary.

Tickets are required, and can be reserved starting Friday at www.clevelandfoundation.org.

The Cleveland Foundation has already donated to the community free tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Great Lakes Science Center, along with free passes to ride the RTA.
