It is with deep regret that we announce that, in the interest of public safety, we must cancel the 2020 Johnson City Jazz Festival. The COVID 19 virus is causing cancellations all across the country and East Tennessee is no exception. Health departments of many states are forbidding such gatherings completely. It is tremendously disappointing. We had such a fine lineup. We have invited all the artists to play at the next festival, and hope they will accept.
We hope that all our jazz fans will be safe and healthy through this crisis, and that it passes quickly. We look forward to seeing you at the next festival!
