Call for ArtistsThe deadline for receipt of applications was noon on Tuesday May 19, 2015. The Application process is now closed for this year. Thanks to everyone who applied for MJF 2015.

The Festival will open with a special event on Thursday evening October 15 and continue through Sunday night October 18, 2015. As with previous editions, MJF offers 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 proud to be a jazz festival that has grown in popularity with recognition of our excellent jazz programming”, says Festival Director Peggy Holloway. “Musicians and their fans are attracted to the friendly atmosphere in Merrickville and we look forward to putting together an exciting line-up of talent again this year. Although our operating budget is much smaller than those of larger, well-established festivals,” continued Ms. Holloway, “we are proud to offer the most interesting programming possible, and rely on and appreciate 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. The Application Form will be posted right up to noon on Tuesday May 19, 2015.
