The 22nd annual Twin Cities Jazz Festival set for June has been postponed.
Scheduled for June 25-27 in and around Mears Park in St. Paul's Lowertown, the hugely popular multi-stage, free fest has been put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We're not sure when things will be able to resume, but in the meantime, we have some exciting plans to bring you,” festival executive director Steve Heckler said in a statement on Monday. “We are working on live streaming jazz performances from the Twin Cities, around Minnesota and the world. Please stay tuned.”
He added: “Keep in mind, jazz has a history of getting us through tough times like these, and jazz will get us through this pandemic. Jazz has already carried us through a depression, two World Wars and the last pandemic in 1918.”
