WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
2014 was a fabulous success.
We are already planning for October 15 – 18, 2015 and are looking forward to having you join us.
At Merrickville’s Jazz Fest (MJF) we offer a wide variety of jazz performances taking place in a number of large and small venues in Merrickville’s beautiful downtown core including pubs, restaurants, churches, a community centre, a college, the legion and the Baldachin Ballroom. Last year’s lineup included artists from Toronto, Montreal and Merrickville as well as many performers from the Ottawa-Gatineau area.
While there are occasional presentations of other genres of music, MJF can proudly say that it offers almost 100% jazz content and our fans have enthusiastically voiced their appreciation. We were thrilled to introduce an educational component last year and are making plans to have that be a permanent feature of our experience in future. Merrickville is a small historic village that offers festival goers and artists alike a unique atmosphere and intimate experience. Entering into only its fifth year of operation, the festival is growing carefully to maintain its viability. Although our operating budget is much smaller than those of larger, well-established festivals, we are proud to offer the most interesting programming possible and count on the support and collaboration of our generous sponsors, faithful audiences and fabulous artists as well as our wonderful team of volunteers to make it work.
We have already received many expressions of interest in performing at the festival this year. If you would like to be considered, please complete and submit the online Application Form. There you will find explanations on the information and support material that is required.
