This summer, Saint Paul, Minnesota’s Mears Park will come alive with the sounds of jazz. The 24th annual Twin Cities Jazz Festival presented by AARP Minnesota is returning to the popular Lowertown arts district for two days: Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25, 2022.
The Twin Cities Jazz Festival, established in 1999, is a non-profit organization, with a mission to keep the art form of jazz alive and well in our community. All performances will be free and family friendly. Bring a lawn chair, grab a bite and beverage on-site or from a nearby dining establishment, then sit back and enjoy the syncopated rhythms of this year’s featured entertainers. Of course, dancing is most welcome, too!
A variety of talented musicians from around the country and around the corner will take to the Jazz88 Main Stage in Mears Park to delight jazz fans, new and old. 2022 Twin Cities Jazz Festival headliners include Matthew Whitaker, Emmet Cohen Trio with Bruce Harris, Tremé Brass Band, Brandon Goldberg, Bruce Henry and the Evolution of African American Music, and Zacc Harris Group.
