2020 Savannah Jazz Festival

Things will necessarily look different this year.  The free Festival’s goal is to keep everyone —members, artists, production partners, and attendees — SAFE from COVID-19.  So, like good jazz stewards, Savannah Jazz is all about IMPROVISATION!
The 2020 Jazz Festival is Savannah-Safe/CDC compliant
Join us to hear and watch the Savannah-Safe Jazz Festival 2020 at:
Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, outdoors-but-covered, controlled access and seating, and, socially-distanced seating, Savannah-Safe/CDC compliant for a small studio audience of community members, supporters, and City leaders.
Live Stream to the World via TV & Internet with our partners at WSAV TV, Dick Broadcasting Radio, Facebook and YouTube!
Direct Participation during music breaks by Savannah Mayor and civic leaders, TLC, Visit Savannah, sponsors, and musicians helping to reinforce this important cultural event.
Watch Parties will be held in area bars, restaurants, Community Centers, and Churches if that is deemed safe.  They are certainly encouraged at home and on the radio while hosting personal picnics and outdoor gatherings.
