Twin Cities Jazz Festival

221 5th Street East
Saint Paul, MN 55101


The Twin Cities Jazz Festival 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 21 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 St. Paul.  Over 100 youth perform at the festival as well as participate in programs that bridge the gap between youth and professional artists.  Performances and youth activities are free and open to all.  Again, ALL performances, clinics and masterclasses are free and open to the public!
