Elkhart Jazz Festival – CANCELED

2020 Elkhart Jazz Festival: June 19-21 Canceled

Due to COVID-19 pandemic and the government executive orders to limit groups and gatherings

Yesterday, April 8th 2020 the Elkhart Jazz Festival announced that our plans to host the 33rd festival will not come as intended this June. Given the current orders from federal, state, and local levels we fully understand the seriousness of the situation and the committee did not enter this decision without very thoughtful review.

Our planned announcement to go “on-sale” and promote the 2020 roster had already been delayed several weeks. About the time that the NBA communicated suspending their season on March 11th, we were in full swing to announce our own all-star lineup. We sincerely thank our amazing volunteers, unmatched sponsors and supporters, world class musicians, and expected guests for their understanding. The City of Elkhart spends the better part of a year in preparation to bring the community out for ‘the party of the summer’. While we may not be able to promise a June event at this time, we are committed to monitoring this closely with our local and national health leaders to understand what a party in 2020 could look like. Check out our Facebook page over the coming weeks as we recognize the anticipated acts and work to secure them for future placement. Many have been hosting online concerts and giving opportunities for you to become a fan.
Produced by Elkhart Festivals Inc., the festival is made possible with support from the City of Elkhart, Community Foundation of Elkhart County, and Elkhart County Convention and Visitors Bureau. We appreciate the trust of our key sponsors including INOVA Federal Credit Union, Kem Krest, Welch Packaging, Gaska Tape Inc., NIBCO, JJ Babbitt, and MORryde.
Special thanks to all those in healthcare working tirelessly to care for others during this unprecedented time.
Stay well, stay positive, and stay tuned!
Ben Decker
President, Elkhart Festivals Inc
