Like you, we are keeping a close watch and staying informed on the fluid situation of Covid 19. As we follow the CDC and local health officials' recommendations, we all MUST do our part to help stop the spread of this virus. Jazz fest is three months from what we plan to be the opening night of our 19th Festival. 
 
Many other festivals through mid-April have postponed or canceled and understandably so. It’s definitely the safest and smartest thing for them to do at this time. In early May we’ll come back to you with an update, but for now we are proceeding with jazz fest plans, all systems go.
 
Our entire jazz festival team is hopeful that Covid 19 will have run its course and that we can safely be together in late June for some unforgettable musical performances
 
We want you our loyal patrons to know that we are very thankful for your support. We pledge to you that we will, to the best of our options and capabilities, do the right thing for everyone. 
 
Be safe, follow the CDC Guidelines, let's care for one another as best we can and win the battle to contain Covid 19.
 
Here are the top official resources in Rochester to consult to keep yourself and others healthy.
 
We’ll see YOU on Jazz Street!
