June 2, 2020 – TD Niagara Jazz Festival  and COVID-19

This page will be updated frequently during the COVID-19 crisis.

Bringing the community together is what we do, but with the COVID-19 outbreak, we need to take precautions.  Your health and safety is of the utmost importance to us as is the health and safety of our artists, staff and volunteers.

The festival will be proceeding with caution during these challenging times.  We are taking the following measures:

Postponed events:

Our 3rd:  Niagara’s Summer MARDI GRAS session with Dr. Brice Miller will be postponed until tomorrow (Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020) to respect Blackout Tuesday.

“The Niagara Jazz Festival stands together in solidarity with the Black community against all forms of racism, violence, and hate. We are committed to fighting against racism, both individual and systemic, and send love to those fighting for a better future.”


The following events are being postponed.  Please check back closer to the date for an update:

NEW – Adapting to the current situation:

We are now ‘live-streaming’  our ‘In Your Own Backyard’ Series so that music fans can watch from the safety of their own home.  To view these events LIVE or after the fact, please click HERE (which is our TD NJF Facebook Page).  Access is FREE but we do encourage donations to help pay for the musicians and admin costs.

To view our schedule of upcoming live-streamed events, please click HERE.

We are also working on getting these events sponsored.  (If you would like to sponsor one of these events please contact: Tricia: or if you would like to donate, please see below.

To stay up-to-date with the current COVID-19 situation in the Niagara Region, please be sure to check regularly with Niagara Region Public Health. Click here for more information.

We do look forward to bringing the community back together through our concerts and initiatives as soon as we are safely able to do so and remember that in the interim, tuning in via ‘live stream’ will be an option at our concerts.

Please be sure to check back with us for updates.
