All performances at all venues & clinics are free & open to all!

The Twin Cities Jazz Fest is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of bringing communities together to enjoy and appreciate the art form of jazz and inspire new generations of youth. What started as a small one­-day event in downtown Minneapolis 24 years ago has grown into one of the largest free civic jazz festivals in the upper Midwest. The festival is located in and around Mears Park in the Lowertown neighborhood of downtown Saint Paul. There are two outdoor stages at Mears Park and one outdoor stage next to the Farmers Market. In addition, over 18 St. Paul venues have jazz programmed throughout the weekend.  The Jazz Fest is a walking event. Most of the stages and venues are within walking distance.

TPT is an official sponsor and will host the TPT Stage in our Street Space on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24.
