Mark your calendars for the 2021 Defiance Jazz Festival! This year’s event will take place in person, as well as being simulcast across many social media platforms! Please click “interested” or “going” for updates as we get closer to the event! After a long hiatus, we can’t wait to bring live music back to our community!
Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on! No outside food or drinks allowed, but food vendors will be on site for all your caloric needs, and we will have beer and wine for sale at the event!
Due to COVID, the decision was made to hand out J.R.’s Jazzy Funbags this year in place of the regular children activities. Families should look for the Citizens In Action tent as they enter the festival.
This year’s acts will include our house band, the Fort Defiance Dixieland Jazz Band, guitarist Gaetano Letizia, sassy swing ensemble Snaps for Sinners, and Jazz legend Bobby Floyd and The Bobby Floyd Trio!
Gates open at 3:30, and the music starts at 4:00!
All events subject to current Covid-19 guidelines.
