Notice to 19th Edition Club Pass Ticket Holders 

2022 Club Pass Ticket Information, Ticket Policy & FAQs

Club Pass tickets purchased for our 2020 festival are automatically honored for our next edition June 17 - 25, 2022! In consideration of these unprecedented times and since the Club Pass is a value ticket for a festival series, not a ticket to a specific show on a specific date, if you cannot use your pass in 2022 we are pleased to extend the pass’s full value to 2023.

Club Passes may be shared or transferred after redemption at our Ticket Shop. Dates and hours of operation will be announced in May 2022. 

We have been honored to bring you the finest in creative improvised music from around the world for 18 years in our renowned club pass series.

In order to ensure your health safety June 17-25, 2022, RIJF will follow all health guidances in according to the official policy of the NYS Department of Health and the Monroe County Department of Public Health.

Club Pass Ticket Policy & FAQs

Q: I bought Club Pass tickets: 1) as a Christmas gift for my family, 2) I will not be here,  3) I am moving,  4) the rescheduled dates do not work for me, can I please get a refund?

A: All 2020 club pass tickets purchased have received an open, extended credit value for our 2022 or 2023 festivals. You may transfer your ticket order or credit to another person. Club Pass tickets are general admission, multi-entry, multi-venue, value ticket, and are non-refundable.


There is a vast difference between reserved seat concerts and RIJF’s 3-Day and 9-Day Club Pass series general admission tickets. Club Pass Tickets offer a steeply discounted value allowing attendance to as many shows as physically possible. Club Passes are fully transferable,  shareable and are specially-priced value tickets providing a multi-day music experience. 

Since 2002, RIJF has developed its Club Pass series to offer as many performances on one ticket (a pass) as possible. Patrons who purchase 3- and 9-Day Club Pass tickets from late October to March before any artist names have been announced, know that the festival delivers high-level entertainment for a very low price over the course of several days in multiple venues.

Club Pass Show Entry without a Club Pass

You don't need a Club Pass to access Club Pass Series shows. Enter at the door for $30, cash only. No advance tickets are sold for Club Pass Series Shows and there are no reserved seats. Entry is first-come, first-served for all, whether you pay cash at the door or have a Club Pass. Since venues may fill to capacity prior to shows so to ensure a better chance of a seat, arrive early and wait in line. Doors open 30 minutes before shows.

"The club pass is fantastic. It's very cool to be able to walk to all the different venues and to have different types of venues i.e. churches, bars, concert halls, etc .”

"As always, the Club Pass acts are both new and familiar. The range of types of jazz is broad. All performances i attended were well worth the price of the Club Pass."

“The club pass makes it possible to see a lot for a little. Great quality of music!
