41st Merimbula Jazz Festival (9-12 June 2023)

Make a date to meet your mates in Merimbula this June long weekend!

The Merimbula Jazz Festival brings together jazz musicians young and old from right across Australia! Hear all styles from big band, swing, modern, funk, fusion and mainstream to traditional and ragtime across four fabulous days.

With six venues within walking distance and 100 bands on offer, there's plenty for everyone. Take part in Saturday's Lantern Walk along the lake at twilight then hang out at Streetfest with local oysters, spirits, beers and wines on offer.  Saturday night's Youth Jazz Quest has generous cash prizes for up and coming musicians and a great jam session! Monday's Jazz Hatter party rounds out Australia's longest running jazz festival!

The Merimbula Jazz Festival is a not-for-profit event, run by volunteers, keeping jazz alive since 1981. Buy your tickets now then book your accommodation! Merimbula is the place to be over the June Long Weekend.
