Window Dressing Competition

What better way to get involved with the Merimbula Jazz Festival than with some healthy competition?

This year’s Merimbula Jazz Festival has all styles and genres of jazz! There’s big bands, school bands, military bands, jazz funk, jazz & blues, traditional jazz, ragtime, modern jazz (think Miles Davis & Charlie Parker), incredible jazz vocalists, bands to dance to, duos and solo performers.
