Thank you everyone for supporting the Twin Cities Jazz Festival.

We will see you June 23-24 , 2023!


After 25 years, Kris and I will be retiring following the 2023 Twin Cities Jazz Festival. This has been such a rewarding experience. We cannot thank all of you enough for the support that has kept this community event going for this long. As you can imagine, events have become a lot more difficult to produce than when we started, but we feel confident that the Twin Cities Jazz Festival will last long into the future.

We are seeking a new Executive Director for the Twin Cities Jazz Festival. The job description and info is posted in the downloadable PDF below. Please feel free to share this with anyone you believe might be interested and qualified that is passionate about jazz and the City of St. Paul.

To make the transition go as smoothly as possible, the new director will have the opportunity to work with Kris and me to learn how this fantastic jazz machine works as we produce the 2023 Twin Cities Jazz Festival.

Gratefully - Kris & Steve
