Next year Jazz Festival returns to downtown Rochester



Rochester, New York – Friday organizers with the CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival said that the event will be returning to downtown in 2022.

According to officials, planning the festival’s long-awaited return is already underway, after a two-year pause.

“We are extremely excited to bring the Festival back to Downtown Rochester,” said Nugent, Producer and Artistic Director. “It has been a stressful two years of scheduling, postponing, rescheduling, and postponing again, and again. Finally, though, on June 17, 2022, our much-anticipated 19th Edition will open!”

“Postponing our Jazz Festival for two years in a row has left a void for all of us,” said Producer and Executive Director Marc Iacona. “We can look forward once again to hearing vibrant music from around the world in June in downtown Rochester.”

The details will be announced at the annual spring press conference on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.
