Twin Cities Jazz Festival
June 20 - June 22FREE
The Twin Cities Jazz Fest is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the mission of bringing communities together to enjoy and appreciate the art form of jazz and inspire new generations of youth. What started as a small one-day event in downtown Minneapolis 21 years ago has grown into one of the largest free civic jazz festivals in the upper Midwest. The festival is located in and around Mears Park in the Lowertown neighborhood of downtown Saint Paul. There are two outdoor stages at Mears Park and one outdoor stage at the the Saint Paul Union Depot. In addition, over 15 St. Paul venues have jazz programed all three days as well as music after the outdoor stages end. The Jazz Fest is a walking event. Most of the stages and venues are within walking distance and ALL performances are free and open to the public. You can come and go as you please. Check the schedule page for the complete lineup.
