What’s On


The Festival will start at 5pm in all six venues, finishing at midnight.


The Festival will again feature the ever popular parade through town. Starting at 10.30am, it will finish at the outdoor stage on Beach Street with the Big Blow and a sing-along. The program will re-start immediately afterwards, at noon, and continue through till midnight.
This year, we are pleased to introduce the Lakeside Lantern Walk. Assemble at 5 pm at Spencer Park, Merimbula. Walk begins at 5:30 pm and makes its way into Beach Street, ending near Twyford Hall.
On Saturday evening Jazz Quest will be held at the Lakeview Hotel. This provides a great opportunity to hear the future trends of jazz and to be amazed at the talent on show from our young musicians.


The ecumenical service will be held in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, opposite the RSL on Main St, commencing at 11.30am. The program will recommence at noon in all venues and continue through till midnight.


The Jazz Hatters Party is a fun-filled day to be held at Club Sapphire and will feature a line up of popular bands. There will be prizes for the best hats and the Festival raffle will also be drawn. It is a community event and is free for all. You cannot bring your own food or drinks but there will be plenty available at a reasonable cost.

Don’t forget to take time to see the Jazz Art display at Club Sapphire. One of the paintings will feature as the basis for next year’s poster. The 2019 poster is based on the painting by Sue Ellen Yates and the colours for this year are based on those in the painting.

Our website has all the information you need for easy registration for the 2019 Festival.

We look forward to seeing you in Merimbula in 2019.
