COVID-19 Update

As you know, directives from government and health agencies have required the temporary closure of music venues and the cancellation of upcoming music festivals such as the TD Ottawa and Toronto Jazz Festivals and the Festival international de Jazz de Montréal. This is happening all over Canada and the rest of the world and updates are communicated to us on a regular basis.

With MJF 2020 scheduled for October, we are continuing with our efforts to plan and program the festival. At the appropriate time in the process, we will base a decision on whether to present or cancel the festival on the current advice from our government officials and health experts. Our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our audience, artists and team of dedicated volunteers as well as our valued sponsors and local business colleagues and any visitors to Merrickville during the festival. For now, stay safe and well.

Susan Piercey – Festival Director
