        Please Help Keep TC Jazz Free

    (Jazz Fest Update)

    The 2020 Twin Cities Jazz Fest planned for this June is cancelled. In the meantime, however, we created two very exciting jazz presentations: JAZZ FEST LIVE, and the TWIN CITIES JAZZ FEST SCHOLARSHIPS. Jazz Fest Live is a platform that brings live jazz performances into your home every Thursday at 7PM CDT. The Twin Cities Jazz Fest Scholarships is a partnership with MacPhail Center for Music and Walker West Music Acadamy to provide free lessons to youth whose families have been financially affected by the virus. Please see below for more information and how you can participate. We're not giving up on our artists and all the folks who make these free civic events happen and hope you'll do the same by continuing your support.

    The Twin Cities Jazz Festival introduces Music on the Move

    We can’t safely gather in Mears Park for a large outdoor festival but we can bring some toe-tapping music to the community.
