CANCELATION OF THE 2022 NCJF

It is with heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of this year’s event!

Due to the uptick in numbers getting Covid, the board of directors of the North Carolina Jazz Festival have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 event. The health of our attendees and musicians is foremost in our thoughts!

Watch this space for information about a possible Live Stream presentation by our musicians.

Those who have already purchased tickets or patronships will be getting letters or emails telling them of their options, which are:

  1. Make a donation to North Carolina Jazz Festival totaling the value of your ticket(s). This would be tax deductible as we are a non-profit 501-C organization.
  2. Move your ticket(s) to 2023.
  3. Get reimbursed for the value of your ticket(s) or patronship(s).

Etix purchasers will automatically receive a refund.

We are working on the lineup for 2023 and will post it here asap.

Many of our musicians have already chosen to re- up for next year.

We wish you all good health for the rest of 2022 and beyond and hope to see you in 2023!

Sandy and the NCJF Board of Directors

On Saturday from 10:30 until 2pm we treat our patrons to a musical brunch, when all of our All-star musicians play for their pleasure while everyone enjoys a delicious brunch.  During the last hour we have a “jam” when the patrons who are musicians have the opportunity to play with the All-stars.  Fun for all!

Our local artist for 2023 will be Barton Hatcher!

Mr. Hatcher was our NCJF artist in 2017, when his artwork “Kind of Blue” was a great hit with our attendees. We are looking forward to see what he creates for 2021, and thank him for again offering to create and donate a piece “jazz art” for our event.
