President’s Message


AUGUST 25, 26, 27, 2022

Hello, fans, friends and supporters of Blue Jay Jazz.

Music is about being in the moment. Tickets to the 2021 Blue Jay Jazz Festival sold out fast. It was clear by the demand that people have missed the sense of joy and community that live music events like our spectacular lakeside concerts deliver. We’ve really missed our community and can’t wait to welcome you back in August. Here’s a sneak peek:

Stay tuned for more details

With the launch of our new website, we are already planning the 2022 Blue Jay Jazz Festival and are so excited to be able to go back to FULL CAPACITY!

Join our email subscriber list and follow us on Facebook and Instagram and you’ll be part of a special pre-sale club that gets early-bird access for 48-hours prior to the general public on sale for 2022. We’ll also keep you informed of new opportunities, special announcements, and more as we launch our 2022 plans.

The Blue Jay Jazz Foundation is devoted to its mission of promoting, educating and developing our youth to excel and reach their dreams.

We’ve made it easier to support the music and programs you love by donating online.
