The 2020 Twin Cities Jazz Festival planned for this June is postponed. We’re not sure when things will be able to resume, but in the meantime, we have some exciting plans to bring you. We are working on live streaming jazz performances from the Twin Cities, around Minnesota and the world. Please stay tuned. 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.

Keep in mind, jazz has a history of getting us through tough times like these, and jazz will get us through this pandemic. Jazz has already carried us through a depression, two World Wars and the last pandemic in 1918.

A special thank you to AARP of MN, our presenting sponsor, and HIWAY Federal Credit Union, our Main Stage sponsor, for supporting us while we navigate this situation. We are looking at using technology in many different ways to surprise and delight our jazz-loving audience until we can gather together again as a community.

Jazztisticly speaking, we’ll all get through these challenging times, so hang in there. — Steve Heckler and the Jazz Fest Board of Directors

The Twin Cities Jazz Fest is booked by a committee comprised of musicians, board members and jazz aficionados.  We book a wide range of jazz styles for both our outdoor stages and stages at venues around St. Paul and follow the artistic and diversity goals set by the festival Board of Directors.

ARTISTS – HANG IN THERE!    We are not accepting any submissions at this time as we have no idea what the Jazz Fest will look like this year.



Please check back once we have our summer dates confirmed.

No political vendors,  street teams or any activity supporting or opposing any political candidate or cause is permitted at the Jazz Festival.   We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and this is strictly not allowed.
