The Twin Cities’ Largest Free Jazz EventThank you to our sponsors, foundations , the City of St. Paul, production crew and fans for making the 2014 Twin Cities Jazz Festival the best year ever! Please like our Facebook page for upcoming jazz events.
See you next year – June 25-27, 2015.
The Twin Cities Jazz Festival is one of the largest civic events in the Upper Midwest each year, attracting over 30,000 people to the vibrant, joyful sounds of jazz. Festival events are held in and around the beautiful Mears Park, in the heart of downtown Saint Paul’s historic Lowertown neighborhood.
Held the last week of June, the festival kicks off with the annual multi-club “Jazz Night Out” on Thursday, followed by six hours on Friday and a full day on Saturday of nonstop music on outdoor stages. You’ll also find jazz in neighborhood bars and restaurants all weekend. .
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
