As with previous editions, MJF 2015 offered a wide variety of jazz performances at pubs, restaurants, churches, and other locations throughout Merrickville’s beautiful downtown core. While there may be very occasional presentations of other genres of music, MJF can proudly say that it offers almost 100% jazz content and fans have enthusiastically voiced their appreciation. We are thrilled to be a jazz festival that has grown in popularity with recognition of our excellent jazz programming. Musicians and their fans are attracted to the friendly atmosphere in Merrickville and although our operating budget is much smaller than those of larger, well-established festivals, we strive to offer the most interesting programming possible.
MJF relies on and appreciates the support and collaboration of faithful audiences and a wonderful team of volunteers to make it work.
We are extremely fortunate to have a cast of generous sponsors, donors, friends and supporters without whom this Jazz Festival could not exist. All of our benefactors join us in understanding that cultural activities such as this festival are not a frill but a necessity to build a strong community.
