Coming in October: MJF 2020 Virtual Edition!
Merrickville’s Jazz Fest will return this year for its 10th Anniversary Season and we couldn’t be more delighted! With the encouragement and support of a number of key partners, we are going to host a scaled-down but exciting online edition from October 15 to 18, 2020 and we’ve been hard at work getting everything organized for you. We’ve had to adapt to a different way of planning and presenting a music festival but some things have not changed all that much. After virtually the same selection process, virtually the same hiring process, virtually the same curation of a final lineup, and of course, many virtual meetings, discussions and collaborations, we’ll be able to put on our beloved festival. It won’t take place in the beautiful village of Merrickville at the many locations we know but it will be hosted right here — virtually — on the MJF website.
We eagerly look forward to a time when we can safely reunite to attend live concerts whenever and wherever that may be. Until then, we are thrilled to celebrate ten years of the festival with performances by some great jazz artists that we can all enjoy from the comfort of our own homes — separately but together — when it’s time catch a show.
The announcement of this year’s lineup and information on how you can purchase passes and tickets will be announced in the coming days. For now, as always, thank you for your ongoing interest and support, and best regards to everyone.
Susan Piercey – Festival Director
