The 20th Annual Twin Cities Jazz Festival presented by AARP is set for June 21-23, 2018 in Lowertown Saint Paul, Minnesota. See Full Schedule.
“Jazz music is America’s past and its potential…It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.” — Wynton Marsalis
The Twin Cities Jazz Festival is probably one of the funnest and coolest events in the Twin Cities! The festival is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) free out-door event open to all. The main stage along with several outdoor stages are located in and around Mears Park in the Lowertown neighborhood of downtown St. Paul, MN. Over 20 St. Paul venues partner with the festival hosting jazz all weekend long. As part of the festival mission, over 100 youth perform at the festival. Our national headliners lead masterclasses/clinics to students that are free and open to all.
If you plan to attend one of our outdoor stages there’s lots of food vendors as well as great local craft beer selections and wine. All jazz fest stages are accessible.
The Twin Cities Jazz Festival is funded by our generous corporate sponsors, grants and individual donations.
