JAZZ FEST UPDATE – 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
