Festival Cancelled

To all Jazz Lovers

With much regret, we are unable to proceed with the 2020 Merimbula Jazz Festival because of the ban on indoor non-essential gatherings of more than 100 people, effective as of 18 March 2020.

Even before this announcement, the MJF Committee was actively considering the cancellation of the Festival because of the risks to:

  • our loyal Jazz Lovers
  • our talented and inspirational musicians both local and interstate
  • the dedicated volunteers who do so much to make the Festival a success
  • our wonderful and generous sponsors
  • the wonderful local community in which we are all fortunate to live

The Big 40th Merimbula Jazz Festival will now be held on the Queens Birthday weekend in 2021 (June 11th – 14th), and we are committed to making it bigger and better than ever with your support.
